Keypad sensitivity is perfect when using Gnome on latest stable Ubuntu. when I change to KDE, however, sensitivity is so high, I can't get anywhere near touchpad without causing changes to cursor.

Make sure you've installed the kde-config-touchpad package. An "Touchpad" configuration module is then available in your "System Settings", aliased "synaptiks". It provides various configuration options for your touchpad, such as multi-touch options, cursor speed, scrolling options, "tapping", etc.

You adjust the mouse sensitivity. Go to System->Preferences->Mouse. adjust the sensitivity there. In the Software Center there is an application called Pointing can try installing that. you can install it through the terminal by typing sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings
