ah, ok, this post is helpful, thanks :)
indeed, my original desktop file contained:


(I don't have any *.desktop.cmake files though)
which I had to change to 14 about 1 year ago when I installed in debian 
squeeze, now I compiled it against kdevelop 4.5.1 in kubuntu 12.04 and had to 
change it to 15
- I used 'find /usr -name "kdev*.desktop" | xargs grep -i version' to find out 
what version my kdevelop is - 15 seems not self-explaining to me for kdevelop 
4.5.1 ;-)
so I'll try the latest kdev-upload plugin source and hope the automatic 
version adaption will work...
