You can run either `apt-get -f install` or `dpkg -i --force-overwrite
<file path and name>`.  That multiple installation of files happens
all the time, and in my experience is especially common with KDE.

Be sure that the overwrite problem is the only one before you use
`apt-get -f install`.  You're forcing installation, and the results
may not be predictable.  Mind you, though I've been cautioned about it
by others far more expert than I, I've yet to have a problem with it.
