I've rolled some additional changes into this proposed package:

  * Add kubuntu_10_displayconfig_tryagain.patch so that if displayconfig
    thinks a proprietary driver is installed, but it can't find it, it
    will try to find a non-proprietary driver instead of crashing (LP: 
  * Add kubuntu_11_wineconfg_amd64.patch so that wineconfig looks in the right
    dir for wine on AMD64 (LP: #151982) - Patch should be removed for the next
    svn snapshot or release as a fix has been committed upstream already
  * Add kubuntu_12_powermanager_survive_no_brightness.patch so that if the old
    brightness cannot be gotten from DBUS, powermanager won't crash
    (LP: #183656) and (LP: #198071)
  * Add kubuntu13_displayconfig_add_new_monitors.patch to support additional
    ViewSonic VA702 variants (LP: #192899)

Please Have a look at these bugs and see if you can confirm or deny the fixes 
work using the package from my PPA.
