   Sounds like you've ended up with limitations I found after loading a xfce
version of ubuntu known as xbuntu. Myself, I removed all the xfce I could
using synaptic manager but here's a short cut. Though I have not done what
the guru at advises, last night I
reviewed his guidance with regard to perfecting Kubuntu, which is run off of
KDE, which you are asking about. Clicking on the above http, you may review
the advice given. And, if you like what is said, I believe you'll solve the
issues you have. I find cryptic expressions guru a little hard to read but
he's thorough and has many followers who rave about his help on Fact of matter, there's a link from the http to if you wish to verify before you follow his guidance about
10.04 lucid lynx updating relative to your black screen. Yes, I believe
Kubuntu will handle UbuStudio. Good luck!
