I have both Ubuntu, and Kubuntu 8.10 installed. It could be that you are 
missing some KDE components, which may explain why it won't start. I've just 
fires up Kubuntu, and there is a list of my installed KDE packages below.

kdebase-bin
kdebase-data
kdebase-plasma
kdebase-runtime
kdebase-runtime-bin-kde4
kdebase-runtime-data
kdebase-runtime-data-common
kdebase-workspace-bin
kdebase-workspace-data
kdebase-workspace-libs4+5
kdebluetooth
kdegraphics-strigi-plugins
kde-icons-oxygen
kdelibs4c2a
kdelibs5
kdelibs5-data
kdelibs-bin
kdelibs-data
kdemultimedia-kio-plugins
kdepassword
kdepim-kresources
kdepimlibs5
kdepimlibs-data
kdepim-strigi-plugins
kdepim-wizards
kdeplasma-addons
kdeplasma-addons-data
kdeplasma-addons-libs4
kde-printer-applet
kdesudo
kde-window-manager
kde-zeroconf
kdf
kdm       (may not need that, as you have gdm as display manager)

All the best.

Nigel.
