cannot start kdeas user ,can start icewm,fluxbox

Hi all, I had some problem with my windowmanagers(installed wdm but that totaly locked my keyboard, unstalled it and installed gdm )
Now I cannot start kde as user. I can start it (kde) as root and everthing works fine.
It has probably nothing to do with X-server cause I can start icewm,fluxbox,xfce... as user.
When I try to start kde as user , the kde startup logo comes up but when "
inithilasing perhipicals" it stops and I get a kde-crash window that say something about: ksmserver signal :11 (SIGSEGV)
Anybody any ideas how to fix this?
