You don't need to "install" KXStudio or change your distribution at all,
KX Studio has a PPA repository that is compatible with pretty much any
current Ubuntu or Debian distro. Simply add the PPA to your vanilla Ubuntu
install, update your package manager and select whichever packages you
want, no need to compile anything at all.
