before trying a new installation try to remove the .kde directory from the home of your user. I don't know why, but sometimes it makes KDE not to run... But take care, because you will lose all of your previous KDE configuration (if you have any). So, make a backup before ...

When asking about how to install something, it's helpful if you specify what distro you are using as that makes a difference on how it's done.
