It's not recommended to downgrade KDE. If you doesn't like
KDE4 look&feel, you may try some of the KDE themes, Gnome,
or even Unity.
I recommend you to do exactly the opposite: instead of
downgrading, upgrade it. Open up Software Properties and
enable "Security" and "Update" Repositories. Doing so, you'll
get both security and bug fixes past 10.04-3. If you're brave
, you can enable also Backports Repository, and get
several new packages not included with Kubuntu Lucid, but made
available to Natty and/or Oneiric, the following versions.
But if you really have the guts
, install Kubuntu PPA: https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports
These will give you the new versions of KDE. I use them on
most of my Kubuntu machines.
Answering one of your questions: which version ships with
Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx? Lucid ships with KDE 4.2. You can
check it with "apt-cache policy kdebase-runtime". You can also
open any KDE app (e.g. konsole), and go Help >> About
Thanks to all of you.* I got some good answers and may get things
