Introduction

Much of the documentation available at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ will work just as well for Kubuntu as it does for Ubuntu. This is because Kubuntu is made up of Ubuntu's base plus KDE. Kubuntu users get a suite of free software from KDE. Since some of this software differs from that available by default in Ubuntu, Kubuntu-specific instructions will sometimes be needed. This page seeks to direct users to pages written specifically for Kubuntu.

Appearance

You can customize the appearance of your desktop by tweaking the KDE settings. Most these settings can be reached through Appearance options of Kubuntu's System Settings.

Get Kubuntu

  • Download

    • If you have a fast internet connection, you may want to download the CD Installer, which is nearly 700MB. If you don't have a fast internet connection, you may want to consider requesting a CD.

  • Request A CD

    • Kubuntu is available free of charge on CD from ShipIt. Delivery may take up to ten weeks. For more information, see the ShipIt Questions page.
