I did several recent installations of Postgresql on Debian Wheezy with
UTF8 and LATIN9, and my system's encoding was used every time.

Installation steps outlined below.

Before you install Postgresql, make sure your systems encoding is set to
UTF-8, which you can check with :
locale -a 

If it's not, run :
dpkg-reconfigure locales	

and select UTF-8 for your language.

Use apt-get to install Postgresql :
apt-get install postgresql postgresql-client

I'm not sure if Kubuntu adds some overhead to the installation process.
You might want to try a regular debian install and add the KDE desktop
to it.
