You weren't joking. "Ultimate" is way too much for me. All I want to do is
highlight some some text, select "3D-ify" from a menu, and choose some 
and colours.

It's not WYSIWYG, and the render looks totally different from the design as 
as rotation about any particular axis is concerned. I may eventually get the 
horizontal, but have no idea how to change the colour.

I think it is going to be much easier to re-install Kubuntu.
