Although this is filed against a PPA package, it's also applicable to the KDE 4.8 kdenetwork package in precise. I've invalid for Quantal since upgrades have to come through Precise.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please change the bug tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not, change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

This bug was fixed in the package kdenetwork - 4:4.8.5-0ubuntu0.2

kdenetwork (4:4.8.5-0ubuntu0.2) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * kopete should Replace/Conflict with kopete-gcall due to file conflicts
    - kopete-gcall has been dropped which is why a user should not have it
      installed (LP: #1051333)
