FindKActivities is provided by libkactivities (the kactivities module on  If you don't have it, there won't be such a file.

This, I believe, is how cmake is meant to work.  A package can provide 
its own Find*.cmake file, and find_package will fail if either the 
Find*.cmake file was not found or running the cmake script in said file 
reports that the package could not be found.

CMake's output doesn't always make it clear, however, that this is an 
expected state of affairs.
