To start with, Ubuntu is a distribution, not a desktop. Do you have a dual boot system with Ubuntu and openSUSE 11.2 as the subject heading leads one to believe?
Ubuntu is a distribution of linux, just as openSUSE, Fedora, Mint, etcetera are. A desktop runs under linux and provides the X-windowing environment and support for it. Not trying to preach, just clarifying the difference.
If you're running openSUSE (any version), Ubuntu is not an available desktop environment. Or are you running Ubuntu in a VM under OS 11.2?
You could install KDE or any other DESKTOP in openSUSE by downloading it from the repositories. If you want help with that just let us know.
