kubuntu and ubuntu - stuck on postfix configuration


I am rather new to Linux, but not to computers....



I am trying to finish installing the Kubuntu desktop on my Ubuntu installation. I wanted to try the Kubuntu desktop, and was following instructions elsewhere in the forums so I could choose which environment at login.

Command was sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop

I am now in a terminal window. It says


─┤ Postfix Configuration ├────────────────────────┐
│ │
│ ↑
│ No configuration: ▒
│ Should be chosen to leave the current configuration unchanged. ▒
│ Internet site: ▒
│ Mail is sent and received directly using SMTP. ▒
│ Internet with smarthost: ▒
│ Mail is received directly using SMTP or by running a utility such ▒
│ as fetchmail. Outgoing mail is sent using a smarthost. ▒
│ Satellite system: ▒
│ All mail is sent to another machine, called a 'smarthost', for ▒
│ delivery. ▒
│ Local only: ▒
│ The only delivered mail is the mail for local users. There is no ▮
│ network. ↓

│ <Ok>


I CANNOT select an option, or OK. What do I need to do to select an option and then OK?

Thanks

Thank you for the correct command syntax. After running sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop, the terminal says

Processing triggers for libc6 ...
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...

After thinking about what the error said -processes locked - I thought maybe logging out and in would fix it - guess what? It did! Thanks for all the help
