Well, that, at least, is easy enough to check 

du -hcx / > report.txt

Will give you a pretty complete on where you harddisk space have gone.

8GB is not much in these days and times, though. I usually recoomend at least 
15GB... but that's another thing.

As for the non-working KDE apps: try running them from a console. It might 
give you useful information. Otherwise, it sounds  a bit like a replaced 
system library --- had you run Gentoo, I would know how to check and fix 
that, but SuSE is not exactly my specialty.
