Not enough info for an intelligent answer.. so I'll WAG that your terminal's configuration file has something missing or a typo.

Try setting the preferences for the kterm (I think, I use Eterm, myself). If that doesn't fix it, see:

man <applicationname>
or
info <applicationname>

for any hints.

As a last resort, delete all directories named .kde<anything else> and re-start X.

You will have the default desktop and configs re-generated.

You can usually find the configuration files for something by looking for a file named .<applicationname>rc
