It's possible to install the latest packages from the Debian
repository but awkward. You would need to add a debian/testing or
debian/unstable repository to /etc/apt/sources.list and configure apt
to use the Ubuntu archives unless you explicitly require the testing
or unstable version of a package. I think that trying to install such
a version will require you to update your entire compiler tool chain,
which may be more effort than you want to make.
I just recently installed Kubuntu on a machine and will, if I manage
to get the hardware working, do another today. If that works I try
instaling r-base-dev/unstabl and report back to the r-sig-debian
(Note that there is a special mailing list for Debian-related
questions and I am moving this thread to that list.)
