If you've installed kde *other* than "kubuntu-desktop", then
'sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop'.
If you have done that, then at a terminal
'dpkg-reconfigure kdm' may help.

There is a small 'cashew' on top right corner of screen, right click and 
'unlock widgets', then a similar cashew will appear at the panel, right 
click and modify away.

These may help, not specifically on kubuntu, but applies nevertheless.

We are all users here, and developers seldom see this list, and same 
goes for the ubuntu-list. Launchpad will be a better place if you need 
developers to read, understand your concerns.
