upgraded from ubuntu 8.04 to kubuntu 8.10 in the following way

I installed kubuntu-desktop. Then i did an apt-get dist-upgrade. All went fine.

However I notice that I have some plasmoid widget missing....namely the one which shows the desktop and the notes widget. I think something went wrong during the upgrade.

Can this be fixed?

installed kdeplasma-addons. Had a partial fix. However I could not add the folder view widget.

I added this to /etc/apt/sources.list


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-members-kde4/ubuntu hardy main

Then did


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

Do this even if you have kubuntu already installed.
I then restarted the X server and voila the Folder View widget is there.

HTH other persons who hav similar problems as this is a documented bug it seems
