I know nothing about CygWin. But, in general, to start, KDE must create
a socket directory and file in the "/tmp" directory. You must have such
a directory and it must have permissions 777 unless you are using a
group (in which case 770 would be OK and the user must belong to the
group that owns the "/tmp" directory).
