[SOLVED] cmake error when compiling plasmoid on Ubuntu

[ad#ad-1] I have recently installed kubuntu-desktop (KDE4) on my Karmic Koala installation and tried to install a very cool weather plasmoid called Yet Another Weather Plasmoid but I was unable to do so as I got this error:

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.6/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:84 (MESSAGE):
ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in

CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:
No cmake_minimum_required command is present. A line of code such as

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6)

should be added at the top of the file. The version specified may be lower
if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project. For more
information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers. Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
make: *** No rule to make target `clean'. Stop.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Compilation failed, sorry :-(

I installed kdelibs5-dev and I was able to compile it.

Hope this helps.

However, I wanted to try the latest stable linux kernel (2.6.30 as of now) in this machine and see how it goes. However there are not much problems, I just wanted to install it. I went to Debian Kernel Archive and downloaded the packages but it does not seem to work. So I headed over to the Ubuntu Kernel Archive and the kernel there worked. This is how I did it.
