if you use the KDE desktop then there is an Icon on the toobar. It looks like a command prompt window with a sea-shell over it.

If you can start that, then you should be able to type the application name, such as: xbill , and the probram will either start or display some error. (hopefully)

I can not start the shell.

When you try to start it, it is on the screen for a very short time and it is closing it self in less then a second.

This could be a problem with xauth. This is what checks that apps to make sure they are allowed to run on the X server. There should be a file called .Xauthority in you home directory. Err, I don't really know what happens if you just delete this file though. you can log into a console (CTRL-ALT F5 to get one - CTRL-ALT F7 returns you to the kdm) and type :
xauth info
to see where your .Xauthority file is, you can also modify the file using xauth --help
to list the commands available. Do apps run if you log into KDE as another user?

after this it was working fine again.

Tnx

are you using 'root' as your main user account? You should create a user for yourself to use. Linux is not like windows, and strictly speaking you should not log in to an X window session as root at all! If you need to do something as root you can type su in a shell to get access as root. Anyway I'm glad it's worked out for you.
