If you're talking about the apps in the "Favourites" tab, apparently the location of the KDE4 binaries was changed to /usr/lib/kde4/bin. Remove the apps from your "Favourites" tab and add them again and they should work fine. If it still doesn't work, delete ~/.kde4 (all your settings and things like ktorrent's torrents will be lost, though).

If you're using kdm-kde4 as well, you might want to edit /etc/init.d/kdm-kde4 and replace genkdmconf-kde4 with /usr/lib/kde4/bin/genkdmconf and make sure that /etc/X11/default-display-manager says "/usr/lib/kde4/bin/kdm".

Other than that, I found an annoying bug in Konqueror that asked me to save all links, even links to regular web pages. But it seems to be fixed in 4:4.0.1-0ubuntu2~gutsy1~ppa1 (released a couple of hours later).

Let's not forget this is really a packaging problem, and also that this isn't even an official Kubuntu repository.

The Kubuntu logo is placed right on the Kicker menu. Looks official to me.

Well, adding unsigned launchpad repository sounds official to you?

From Kubuntu web site:
Add deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-members-kde4/ubuntu gutsy main to your /etc/apt/sources.list
Install kde4-core, note that PPAs aren't authenticated so you will likely get a warning when installing


KDE4 will be officially in Hardy, it is "as is" in Gutsy. But it could be more emphasized and should not be advertised on Kubuntu front page, IMHO.

If it still doesn't work, delete ~/.kde4 (all your settings and things like ktorrent's torrents will be lost, though).

Which is why one should never even suggest this.

At most suggest to rename/move .kde4/share/config which at least keeps the user data in share/apps intact (Mails, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, etc.)

As a rule of thumb never suggest an option you wouldn't use yourself because of the potential consequences.

No. If you're scared about losing your data, use 3.5.8 or whatever your distro ships with.
