Run the following command in a terminal:

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop

If you want KDE 4.5 Release candidate 2, then follow these instructions:

That's correct!
But why on earth should I install and run a full mysql5 server to run KDE?
Any way to avoid it?

No, I do not believe there is a way to avoid it.

If you remove mysql-server-core-5.1, then the package manager will also remove all the following packages, including plasma-desktop:

$ sudo aptitude remove mysql-server-core-5.1

I think there must be just few applications needing mysql.
Which ones?
Or should I run ldd throughout all kde programs to find out?
Thanks.

I'm going to create a different question for this very topic.
