Static internal IP

I'm using Kubuntu on my machine, and I was wondering how I could make it use a static internal IP?
In windows, I'd have to go to wireless network connection settings, and edit the internet protocol 4 where I'd have to set up the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS address.
How would you go about it in Linux?

Actually, I ended up finding it myself.
System settings->Network settings->(whatever connection you're on, mine is wired) and delete the connection.
Then Add a new connection, then change "method" to manual, and fill the fields according to your needs.

Worked for me.
