    Hi and thanks for the tutorial,

    I have a question: If I wanted to only install a particular kde 4.9 app such as okular, how would I go about doing that?

    I believe you have to go either for the meta package for a KDE module or the package itself. Check apt-cache search okular and see what it returns, and install that package.
