How to install KDE Plasma on Linux Mint 19

Today we are looking at how to install KDE Plasma on Linux Mint 19.  It is a pretty easy process as shown in the video.  A person only needs to copy/paste these three commands (I adapted the last command since making the video to give you a more complete KDE experience).  At the moment, this method will give you the latest stable release of KDE Plasma 5.12.7.  Enjoy!
Please take note that this process only works on Linux Mint 19, not Linux Mint 19.1.  I hope they fix it.

Commands Used:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/ppa
sudo apt update

sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop kde-plasma-desktop kscreen
