What video card are you using??   I had untold problems with the vanilla 
kubuntu drivers for the NVidia card until I loaded the actual proprietary 
NVidia driver from their site.

I switched video cards three times,  swapped out whole computers, etc....  but 
now that I have loaded the REAL drivers, I have no problems.
