KDE 3.2 won't start as user now....


I installed some programs like gimp, xine, tried getting samba and cups to work. Then I restarted X and now kde does not want to finish loading. It stops at 0%. I am a linux newb and have no idea on how to fix it without reformatting...

KDE works just fine in root though.

Any suggestions?
