This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

'a pure KDE installation' like any other "pure" stuff is 90% a temptation that should not receive excessive credit. Ubuntu is always Ubuntu no matter the DE, except if your main concern is limiting the use of resources. Just install kubuntu-desktop and do not bother about the presence of Unity. But if you really want a pure and hard KDE, make a complete new Kubuntu install from a cd/usb – cipricus Aug 27 '12 at 13:14

From the terminal: sudo apt-get remove unity* and then sudo apt-get autoremove so nothing stays, then proceed to Install KDE sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop.
