This is easily fixed, but I need to know whether you are using KDE 3.x or 4.x.

Better to fix things.

This is not a new feature, it is the old, unix way.  Presumably kubuntu has 
set it as default, as it used to be.  These days most distros set 
double-click as default.  It's easily changed, but again, I need to know 
which version you are using.

Right-click, which will open a context menu if you are in KDE 3.
