XFCE can't open KDE programs

When I am trying to use KDE programs on XFCE, i get the error:
"Cannot talk to klauncher".
It happens a lot with konqueror.
Thank you!

Log out of X, or do this from console without starting a xsession or a dm at boot (if you know how and can do).

$ cd ~/ (This being your user account not root-unless you have the same problem as root)
$ killall -9 kdeinit (Only if you had entered a xsession)
$ rm .DCOP*

Restart X (your XFCE desktop and whatnot) and try again.

Hope this helps.

Thank you, but i'v solved this problem in another way.
I recompiled all of my OS init code library (I have my own OS i created from Slackware) and i just wanted to see if KDE would work.
Thank you anyway!
