How Do I Get The Plasmoid Repository

#Topics: repository for kubuntu plasma widgets,what is ppa for kde plasmoids

I had a load of plasmoids, beginning with plasma-widget- and kde-applet and kde-plasmoid-, which I think I had added from a PPA, but I can’t for the life of me find which one it is (I did a fresh install). I have already tried the backports (first PPA I added anyway), but it isn’t the one.

Plasmoids / Plasma-widgets

The Ubuntu is using the plasma-widget-* as the package name: http://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?38465-Plasmoids-are-now

KDE plasmoids – from the Ubuntu repositories and from the Kubuntu developers PPA

This package also includes the default animator used by the main KDE Plasma Desktop shell. . This package is part of the KDE workspace module.Homepage: http://www.kde.org/:~$ apt-cache show plasma-widgets-addonsDescription: additional widgets for Plasma This package contains additional Plasma widgets shipped in the Plasma addons module.

Plasmoids (binaries) source is from the KDE-apps or somewhere – The Ubuntu repositories and the Kubuntu developers PPA have the package
