so i rebooted system, and loged in as user: sheep into the linux command line, but when i started up KDE it only had root as a posible log in, i tryed to log into KDE with my new user account anyway and no luck.

Is there a certain thing i must do to create a user account for KDE as well??? if so can someone help me out?

Or use the kde user manager. You need to add your users to all necessary groups. Using adduser or kde from root should make it easier.
