This issue occurs because qemu-system-gui is not installed. In addition to Kubuntu, this also affects Ubuntu.

Even in Ubuntu 21.04, the qemu-system-gui package is not installed when qemu-system-x86 is installed using the no-install-recommends option. Note that it is recommended to install Cubic using sudo apt install --no-install-recommends cubic.

$ sudo apt install --no-install-recommends qemu-system-x86
The following additional packages will be installed:
  ipxe-qemu ipxe-qemu-256k-compat-efi-roms libcacard0 libdaxctl1 libfdt1
  libibverbs1 libiscsi7 libndctl6 libpmem1 librados2 librbd1 librdmacm1
  libslirp0 libspice-server1 liburing1 libusbredirparser1 libvirglrenderer1
  qemu-block-extra qemu-system-common qemu-system-data seabios
Suggested packages:
  gstreamer1.0-libav gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly samba vde2
Recommended packages:
  ibverbs-providers qemu-system-gui qemu-utils ovmf cpu-checker
The following NEW packages will be installed:
