On Ubuntu 12.04 Unity I just did

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-full kubuntu-mobile plasma-mobile

The install finished with no problems and I see Kubuntu in lightdm as an option to boot into... but I am not seeing a kubuntu-mobile option?

How do I boot into kubuntu-mobile and get the plasma mobile interface?

I found the file responsible for setting up the mobile session in lightdm at the login screen:

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-mobile-default-settings

This will get you all the kubuntu artwork aswell for the mobile desktop.
