I don't know who created the digikam 2.0.0-natty~ppa1 package, but I 
assume that for the compilation of kipi-plugins, libkgeomap was not 
installed, and thus the geolocation plugin was not compiled. For 
kipi-plugins, libkgeomap is an optional dependency, and geolocation will 
not be compiled if it is unavailable.

If you do

apt-cache depends kipi-plugins

you should see whether your kipi-plugins package depends on libkgeomap. 
If it doesn't, then probably it was compiled without geolocation support.
