I just didn't post it, but I also removed ~/.config.
However I have fixed most of my problem. I renamed my home directory
and created a new one with the old name. I copied ~/.xinitrc *only* to
the new directory. I also deleted all the kde related files in /tmp and
Now kde comes up fine. I just have to copy my non-kde files from my old
directory to the new one.
The remaining problem is that kicker sometimes crashes with a segfault
when leaving kde. This may only happen the first time kde is exited
because I can't reproduce the problem now.
Thanks for the response.
