i don't have network-filesharing, but i see the label in dolphin.
I have clicked it, but any action start.
I search problem solution with google and i find that the problem is that 
packagenetwork-sharing is absent.

if package is installed, now i moving the problem along, but i have a gui that 
write Samba and nfs are absent. 
So now, user have a problem (nfs and samba not installed), but know it.        
whitout network-sharing, they have a problem but any gui write an explication 
of it

kubuntu team can't do anything for this problem?

problem is with kpackagekit.

when it require root privilege, the the dialog window is behind the 
kpackagekit windows and we can't see it.
Only the plasma-bar, in the bottom, notify that a new window is open

thanks, regards
