I wanted a good debugger gui for gdb and found that KDbg is the best one. When I tried searching for it in Synaptic Package Manager I could not found it, then after a bit of googling found out that it was discontinued by Ubuntu guys.

Got a link here pointing to this repo but could not find it there also.

So my question is that is there a way I can download and install Kdbg on ubuntu 10.04 or Is there a better and newer alternative to it?

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

The KDbg is available from the Ubuntu repositories:

Package kdbg
lucid (devel): graphical debugger interface [universe] 
2.2.0-2ubuntu1: amd64 i386 
precise (devel): graphical debugger interface [universe] 
2.5.0-1: amd64 i386 
quantal (devel): graphical debugger interface [universe] 
2.5.1-1: amd64 i386 
raring (devel): graphical debugger interface [universe] 
2.5.1-1: amd64 i386


The KDbg is in the Ubuntu 10.04,Lucid Lynx, repositories. It should be installable via the package management (Synaptic,Apt,...). You should check your settings.

Thanks for the link. But when I start installing it gives an error about the other dependencies. Is there any way I can install it using apt-get or any other package manager so that all dependencies are automatically taken care of. – abhi May 23 '13 at 22:16
@abhi, yea... umm.. install it using apt-get? – psusi May 23 '13 at 23:13
@psusi I did not understood your last comment. Can you please explain. Thanks – abhi May 24 '13 at 6:10
@abhi, you type sudo apt-get install somepackage. – psusi May 24 '13 at 14:46
@psusi Thanks for clarifying that I do know that I just wrote apt-get just as a short form to point to using that command (in its full working form off course.) Do you have any idea how can I use it to install kdbg as currently it is not in package list for ubuntu. – abhi May 24 '13 at 15:07
