You may find 'sudo bash -' a generally useful thing. (Rather than 
repeated sudo commands.) Just like 'kdesu konqueror' from Alt-F2 is.

Does /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ exist?

What does ls -ld /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ say?

Or ls -ld /var/www/phpmyadmin?

e.g. existence and permissions of files/directories, both source and 
destination.
