Cant start KDE (maybe permissions problem)


I just installed KDE and it runs well using root login but I cant get it to work with my user login.

I get the error:

Failed to initialize for relative axes:

line 59 twn: command not found
line 60 xclock: command not found
line 61 xterm: command not found
line 63 exec: command not found

I'm thinking that it may be a permission problem where my user cant access the files it needs to start KDE. Would that be a problem and how can I fix it. If its something else where can I look?
