The 'sudo aptitude install Kubuntu-desktop' command followed with a
reboot/restart WORKED!!!  I've got my Desktop back!!  

Thank you very much!!!

However, when the Desktop came up, it told me my previous KDE4 session had
been corrupted, and KDE4 was not available.  Then it only gave me the option
of a Default Desktop (KDE3).

Is it smart or even safe to reinstall KDE4?  I plan on running in KDE3 until
I read some responses.

After you try this, if it doesn't work, Here is a trick I do, I go 
into /etc/X11 you should see files xorg.conf~, xorg.conf.1, xorg.conf.2 etc,

etc. rename your xorg.conf to one of the files with a number, usually 1 will

do, then restart your xserver, if that don't work try another. the lower 
numbers are the most recent.

When I do this, I always take the xorg.conf and rename it xorg.conf.bak and 
then rename one of the other xorg.conf.1 or 2 etc etc files to xorg.conf. 
Once you find the one that was working, back it up ie: cp xorg.conf
