How do I tell what version of kpdf I'm using?

I'm use Kubuntu 8.04 LTS and will be changing to 10.04 LTS when it comes 

root at arriba ~# ls -l /usr/bin/kpdf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 43K 2008-08-26 06:41 /usr/bin/kpdf

root at arriba ~# /usr/bin/kpdf
Error: "/var/tmp/kdecache-lba" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.

Should I be using kpdf only as sudo?  I've been using kpdf for a long 
time as user 1000. and it has seemed to work.
