I'm turning this email into a bug report, since this seems to be a
The relevant kubuntu patch seems to be this one  and it seems it
has been removed from the 4.5 beta packages, with a changelog message
indicating it has been fixed upstream, although I see no
plasma-netbook.desktop in their plasma-netbook.install file.
I don't fully understand though how this is going to work when one has
