Much of the documentation available at 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.


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.
