It seems as though there's no official packages for Kubuntu/*buntu, but you
can get the latest nightly build of KDE 4 (codenamed Project Neon) by
adding the following to your sources.list:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/project-neon/ubuntu intrepid main

and running

sudo aptitude update


sudo aptitude kde-nightly
