thanks for your report(s).

Most of the symptoms you detail likely have a common cause: Some parts of 
RKWard get installed to a wrong location, and then they can't be found at 
runtime. The problem here is, that the correct paths differ across systems. 
Since don't have a Ubuntu installation myself, I have a hard time, figuring 
out the correct approach.

I created a new test release and corresponding .deb a minute ago. It is to be 
expected that the .deb still does not work for you, though, since it was 
built for Debian unstable.

Could you please try the following steps, and write back on the results:

In your /etc/apt/sources.list add this line:
	deb-src http://rkward.sourceforge.net/debian ./
Now go to a temporary directory and enter:
	apt-get source rkward
This should pull you the 0.5.0c-test3 sources and build scripts. Then:
	sudo apt-get build-dep rkward
This will install everything needed to compile. Two additional ones:
	sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev
	sudo apt-get install fakeroot
These are needed to create debian packages. Now inside your temporary 
	cd rkward-0.5.0c-test3
	dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
Now your temporary directory (cd ..) should contain a .deb built for your 
system. Install that and test.

I know it's a number of steps, but this would really help a lot.

If the problem about missing plugins remains, could you finally go to 
~/.kde4/share/config/ and remove/rename the "rkwardrc" file? Does this help?
