I had Kubutnu 12.04 which was shot after installing updates and could not fix the problem. So I installed Ubuntu 12.04 from CD and I did not like the desktop and tried Edubuntu which I did not like either.
Then I decided to switch over to Kubuntu again and used this command to do that

sudo apt-get install kde-full
the install went through and after restarting, it showed Kubuntu log in screen, but after signing in, it went to Edubuntu desktop environment.

Can some one help me to fix this problem.

you might try cinnamon as the desktop, it's really nice

In the screen where your user and password is asked, you must choose Kubuntu session.

Since you installed Kubuntu on top of Ubuntu, the greeter might be either LightDM (Ubuntu's default) or KDM (Kubuntu's default), I don't know.

If it's LightDM this session menu appears clicking the "engine" above the field where you enter your username, if it's KDM the session menu below that field.

I hope I explained myself.

EDIT: This is LightDM http://cdn.shuffleos.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/lightdm-login-screen-mate.jpg

Dear Tartalo,

Yes you did explain yourself and you did that very well.
I never thought of that.

Thanks to you and to all other responses
