Here it is 'System settings - Computer Administration - Keyboard & Mouse - Standard Keyboard Shortcuts'

Surprised to hear you have problems with Kubuntu 12.04. 
I run it myself, didn't experience any problems, my laptop is up and running since months.

Maybe a problem with the X drivers ? 
I never use the 'recommended' nvidia drivers, always a previous version.
