The net result is that I spent almost a whole day in a vicious circle making configuration changes to KDE, switching to XFCE, making configuration changes there, and going back to KDE until I was reasonably sure that at this time I like XFCE better. Meanwhile I got errors that are a good reason to write what I always wanted to cry about.
