Failed to install Parallels Tools 4.0 in Kubuntu Linux 9.0.4 (updated)

I tried to install Parallels Tools 4.0 inside a fresh Kubuntu Linux 9.04 installation, but it failed. The log tail is:
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic'
Installation of kernel modules was finished successfully
Start installation of user space modules
X server: xorg, v1.6.0
Install X modules from directory: .1.6
System X modules are placed in /usr/lib/xorg/modules
Error: there is no X modules for this version of X server
Error: failed to install user space applications and drivers
Any suggestions?

Update (April 28, 2009): This is a known issue, see these posts at the Parallels forum:

  1. I'm in your same predicament. Path of least resistance might be to settle for the kubuntu 8 appliance.
