Now that Kubuntu is installed and running, there are some tweaks to do to get the KDE interface I desire

First, Kubuntu defaults to a white on black terminal, which is not my schema of choice. To change this I open up Konsole and select Settings->Configure Konsole. Under the Schema tab you can set the color system you want, and for now I am changing it to the SuSE default, which is black on light color. Click the check box that says “Set as default schema” and you are set!
