After starting up but before doing anything I have this from ps:

higonnet    2086  1.4  2.4 253964 50288  ??  S    11:06AM   0:04.50 
kdeinit4: kdeinit4: plasma-desktop (kdeinit4)

Then trying the suggestion I get this:

/usr/local/kde4/bin/kquitapp plasma-desktop && plasma-desktop
<unknown program name>(2209)/: "Application plasma-desktop could not be 
found using service org.kde.plasma-desktop and path /MainApplication."

Just in case he needed to know where plasma-desktop is I also tried

/usr/local/kde4/bin/kquitapp /usr/local/kde4/bin/plasma-desktop &&

The directory indicated seems to exist at least...
