[kde-linux] Wrong Desktop layout in Kubuntu 14.04

Dear All

I have just installed Kubuntu 14.04 onto a Dell Inspiron Mini. It has 1GB of RAM and 150GB HDD.

The layout of the desktop is different to other installations I have done on my other machines with 14.04. The behaviour of applications is different as well.

At the desktop, before any applications are opened:
1) the taskbar is now at the top.  It has a new entry in it called Menu
2) below this is a strip of four icons currently Firefox, Kmail, System Settings, Dolphin 3) Below this as another strip of icons: Bookmarks, Contact, Multimedi, Internet, Graphics, Education, Office 4) When I start an application the taskbar at the top is still present and the normal menu items I would have associated with that application are now accessible via the menu item in the taskbar.

I do not like this layout. I did not chose this layout. I do not want this layout. This laptop is for my niece who will be new to linux and I intend to support her as I use 14.04 on several laptops and desktops. I do not have this layout on any of my others computers. I do not intend to have this layout on any of them either.

How do I change to the layout/behaviour I want and know.

Wait to hear
