How to install KDevelop on Ubuntu 10.4

KDevelop is a decent editor for Rails projects. It gives a nice class browser view of your Rails project.

To resolve the error:
E: Package kdevelop has no installation candidate

before install, Go to :

1. Applications -> System Tools -> KPackage Edit
2. Settings -> Edit Software Sources -> Updates tab
3. Check "Unsupported Updates"
4. sudo apt-get update
5. Run : sudo apt-get install kdevelop

Alternate way:

1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
