There's a difference between an absolute path and a relative path
(cmp. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Path_(computing) )
Both /home/bruce and /.kde are absolute paths.

If there are problems using the relative path (without the leading /),
using the absolute path (aka fully-qualified path-name) should also work!

Probably it's just a typo and you mean .kde instead of /.kde ...
