Please run the following commands and tell us what they do (the first should give a number, the second open a launchpad in your preferred browser)

pgrep -x -u $UID ksmserver
kfmclient openURL http://launchpad.net

please also state the version of the apport package and which kubuntu release you are using.

Here are the result of the commands on this install of Kubuntu 11.4.

$ apport-cli -v
1.20.1

$ pgrep -x -u $UID ksmserver
1501

$ kfmclient openURL http://launchpad.net
The program 'kfmclient' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install konqueror

That would explain it since we don't ship konqueror by default anymore.

apport (1.20.1-0ubuntu3) natty; urgency=low

  * Merge from trunk:
    - Use kde-open instead of kfmclient to open URLs under KDE. Thanks Philip

  * etc/default/apport: Disable by default for the final release.
