You don't need to change the repositories to "convert" ubuntu to kubuntu
or xubuntu (or vice versa).

For example I installed from a server CD to a small PC, then did.

apt-get install ubuntu-desktop xubuntu-desktop kubuntu-desktop

and got all three. :D

The only "problem" with having Kubuntu CD and installing the
ubuntu-desktop package will mean you'll be left with kubuntu (kde and
all kde libs and apps) as well as ubuntu (gnome and all gnome libs and
apps), but you can always purge kubuntu-desktop afterwards.
