Re: Kubuntu and Ubuntu in Dual Boot
not sure about how to know for definite which partition is which. But i would back up your /home directory (should backup your thunderbird stuff) then fire up the live cd/usb and open gparted. Then simply delete the kubuntu partition and and then resize the ubuntu one to fill the gap.

i've done this before when deleting windows and it worked fine. grub remembers which partition to boot ubuntu from and its name wont change when your resize. Then run a grub refresh when you boot into ubuntu and it will clean away the kubuntu option for you.
**note: ** the resize could mess up and lose all your data. has never happened to me, but you never know.
