IIUC, you are using a GUI login, but it fails to start KDE.

If you are using a GUI login, then the file: "~/.xinitrc" is not relevant
since that is ONLY used for the console login.

Unfortunately, people that have no idea what they are talking about will
Do you know which GUI login manager you are using: XDM, GDM, or KDM?
In any case, the problem usually lies in the: "Xsession" script. This
script is run after your login with the GUI login.
