It isn't blaming someone else to say that we need better quality control.

However, I think that the original comment is too harsh.  The KDE 
project has grown and grown.  Developers are more interested in 
developing new stuff than refining existing stuff -- quality control has 
become a second or third priority rather than "Job One".  We have 
reached the point where quality control needs to be an organized effort. 
  Simply filing bugs and hoping that they get fixed by somebody doesn't 
do it any more.  I have watched as KDE-3.4 & KDE-5 have gotten more 
buggy and regressions have occurred that haven't been fixed.

However, all this is probably irrelevant to your problem since it is 
probably caused by file permission and ownership.  So, try my suggestion 
and I will get back to you.
