kde4libs (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

latest version of 9.04, completely up to date.
when installing kshishen via the synaptic package manager, I get an error trying to install kdelibs5 ( a dependancy ).
kdelibs5 subsequently becomes broken.

ok found the problem and the workaround for this.

somehow, someway, during the install of kshishen and a few other kde packages, there was a circular reference of the following file:

/usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/common with ../klog/common which had a link back to the ../common.
once I get rid of the circular link, everything installed.

affects: ubuntu → kdelibs (Ubuntu)
affects: kdelibs (Ubuntu) → kde4libs (Ubuntu)

Unfortunately kshishen is not an official package, and as such we cannot support issues that arise when using unofficial packages.
Have a nice day regardless. :)
