    Hi and Welcome !

    Does your machine has internet access? You can use Synaptic Package Manager ( under System on the KDE Menu ) to install amsn. Type amsn in Search box of Synaptic and install it.
    Or Download amsn package and save it on Desktop. Open Konsole and execute this
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    su 
    dpkg -i amsn_0.95+dfsg2-0.3_i386.deb
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
