Did you use the Rpm's or tar.gz when you installed KDE , it is quite
evident that Konstruct didn't install kde in the correct directories.

I believe that konsturct, by the way it is installed, does not conform to the switchdesk specs. If you wish to switch your Desktop and/or Desktop Manger, simply edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop

change to

If I have botched one of the variables, someone please correct me. But I believe these are correct. I have used konstruct since RH9, and I love it. It gives you a very pure KDE install. I am trying to overcome my own hurdles presently with konstruct choking on some ogg settings.
