Do you mean Kubuntu?

KDE changes a _lot_ of the desktop -- almost all the other remixes
(Unity & GNOME natch, but also LXDE, Xfce, Cinnamon) are based on Gtk
and use bits of GNOME plumbing.

That means that those of us who don't use the KDE family at all don't
know much about how it works, as it uses different components from the
whole rest of the Ubuntu family.
