PPA. Everything worked fine, Then I played around with some widgets

Anyway, I've lost the "icon widget" (don't remember how it's called 
exactly). It's just not anymore listed in the list of widgets when I

application launchers to the panels (or desktop).

Some of the widgets I installed where only available as C++ source

the plasma-desktop package didn't help.

So, any idea what's wrong, or how to debug this?
