Q1: I've installed and have happily been using the gentoo file manager. The executable is in the usual /usr/local/bin. When running as normal user it works fine. If I run KDE as root then clicking on the executable (or adding a link for it) results in nothing. If it was the other way round I'd suspect permissions but this way doesn't seem to make sense.
Q2: I've discovered the CTRL-ALT-F1(F2...F3) switching method but if I have a user account running KDE on F7 and try to run another KDE (under F2 for example) I get a server error. Is it possible to run two sessions of KDE (one user and one root) at the same time?
startx -- :1
That runs X on X display 1, for switching use F8 I think
, the one for F7 is X display 0.
