Kde control center has no index

I recently made the mistake of "upgrading" kde 3.5.7 .  The kde control 
centre subsequently had no index.  I was able to get an index initially 
by deleting my .kde folder.  That is no longer the case.  Besides which, 
the control centre has no index when I open it as root user either.

The last time I had an index, it disappeared after I changed the 
language setting from U.S. English to British English.  I have the 
latest British language package available from the distro.  
Incidentally, it seems I am the only person experiencing this 
difficulty.  I had the same difficulty when installing a previous update 
but I was able to revert to the earlier version and the problem 
disappeared.  I now have no option but to keep the version currently 

I have found the folder /usr/share/apps/kcontrol which contains a folder 
called 'about' and another called 'pics'.  It also contains a file 
called 'kcontrolui.rc'.  'about' contains 'main.html' which is a 
masterpiece of cryptography.

How do I fix this, please?


Cheers, Terry
