Yes, it will.
However, I'd recommend you start the first trial by only 
renaming/moving .kde/share/config, thus leaving appication data such as 
bookmarks and addressbook in .kde/share/apps intact.

If at all you could check if there is a prefilled .kde in /etc/skel, but 
usually there isn't and KDE creates .kde when it is first started on a new 
user account.
