"How I change the distances between desktop icons on kde?"

Hold down your left mouse button and drag the icon to the new location. Then let up on the mouse button and it will stay in the new location. If the new location is fairly close to the old location KDE will drop the icon back into the original spot. In this case drop the icon some distance away and then drag it again to the new location.
