Bug Description

Binary package hint: kubuntu-firefox-installer

when I tried to install firefox via the firefox-installer I got the following error message:

Package: /var/cache/apt/archives/firefox_4.0~b11+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb
Error: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop', which is also in package kubuntu-firefox-installer 11.04ubuntu1

manually installing firefox thru kpackagekit resulted in the same message.
Removing kubuntu-firefox-installer and then installing firefox worked.

  * New upstream release v4.0 B12 (FIREFOX_4_0b12_BUILD1)

  * Add support for unpacked xpi's in the apport hook when reporting
    the extensions installed
    - update debian/apport/firefox.py.in
  * Ensure the Apport hook can be tested properly without modification
    - update debian/apport/firefox.py.in
  * Add DEP-3 compliant headers to all of our patches, and drop the
    bug numbers we carried in filenames. Some of the filenames are so long
    that we get constant lintian warnings about long lines in the changelog
  * Drop libxul-sdk-nspr.patch - it doesn't seem to be needed
    - remove debian/patches/libxul-sdk-nspr.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Move default-apps/firefox.xml to firefox-gnome-support when it is installed
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/firefox-gnome-support.install.in
  * Fix menu-icon-not-in-xpm-format lintian error - generate the xpm at
    build time
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/control
  * Quieten embedded-zlib and embedded-libjpeg lintian errors. These aren't
    really errors, as we're intentionally embedding copies here
    - update debian/rules
    - add debian/firefox.lintian-overrides.in
  * Fix some extended-description-is-empty lintian errors
    - update debian/control
  * Add a manpage to fix a lintian warning
    - add debian/firefox.1.in
    - add debian/firefox.manpages.in
  * Fix build on armel, make sure we install $(INCDIR)/tremor
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
  * Fix description of firefox-dev
    - update debian/control
  * Ship a pkgconfig file to enable browser plugins to build against
    Firefox rather than xulrunner
    - add debian/pkgconfig/firefox-plugin.pc.in
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Check for tee surface support when deciding whether to use tree or
    system cairo
    - update debian/rules

    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
  * Fix the permissions of some files once they are installed, rather than
    directly in debian/. We weren't restoring them in clean anyway
    - update debian/rules
  * Quiten some image-in-usr-lib lintian warnings by adding them to
    lintian-overrides. There's not much point in moving them to /usr/share
    unless we split them out in to an arch-all firefox-common package
    - update debian/firefox.lintian-overrides.in
  * Don't call update-menus in postinst, and add #DEBHELPER# tokens where
    those are missing
    - update debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - update debian/firefox.postrm.in
    - update debian/firefox.preinst.in
