Big question -- are you using Ndiswrapper, & if yes, what version? If yes,
then wpa_supplicant doesn't work with any version less than 1.4 (I think), &
the one provided by default with Kubuntu in the apt repositories is much
lower; 1.1 I think.

of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get
people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who
must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited
to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting
themselves made President should on no account be allowed to
do the job."
