Synaptic is a GNOME program and used as default package manager in
Ubuntu, Kubuntu on the other hand uses KDE and has Adept as default
program manager as it is a KDE program. Synaptic is not in a default
installation of Kubuntu.
You must have installed it or it was pulled in as a dependence of
another package.
