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 mailing list.

(Note that there is a special mailing list for Debian-related questions and I am moving this thread to that list.)
