    select the packages into synaptic to install them

    remove/purge (right click) ubuntu-desktop, then install kubuntu-desktop

    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get install -f

    sudo dpkg --configure -a

    If you wanted the KDE Desktop, why not just install Kubuntu instead of Ubuntu.

    You dont have to remove ubuntu-dekstop to install kubuntu-desktop.

    I'd probably install kde-minimal myself, but I think I've seen kubuntu users here saying that kde-minimal is buggy.
