I install from scratch everytime I try something. So I install default 
ubuntu-desktop, log in with local account, install kubuntu-desktop (or 
one of the other things I tried), reboot and try to log in with local 
account. If it fails, I try to look around and find info in logs, reboot 
and reinstall from scratch and try something else.

I don't know what that is.

I know that when I install kde it asks me if I want lightdm (default) or 
kde. I tried both and neither works. I think lightdm is used for unity, 
I don't want to change that, I just want to provide kde as an option to 
our users.

We were running kde just fine on the same machine with opensuse. On 
ubuntu, gnome and unity work well too, I haven't tried xubuntu or 
lubuntu yet.

I'll try to find a machine with a different video card.
