Is it a fresh install of kubuntu?

I have just checked those instructions on a fresh install of kubuntu,
and I've spot two mistakes (sorry!). I updated the page. 

You can safely repeat the instructions from top to bottom again, and
it should work. I forgot to install dpkg-dev and fakeroot in the
instruction, and apt-get build-dep was after apt-get source.

nope - fakeroot does not need sudo. Really :)

aaah, I see. You are working inside /usr/local. While instructions on
the website assume that you work without root privileages in your
home dir! Please repeat those steps somewhere inside your home
directory. For example in /home/acortis/tmp 

After qglviewer (lib3dviewver) is installed, you can safely delete
files created in your ~/tmp, because the last line installs a
*deb package in your system.

I hope that it works now :)
