check your "view" because if the file is called /.kde (notice the . ) then it's a hidden file, and then if you have something like say, file:/etc/X11 (for example) then if you use the dropdown from "view" in konqueror you will see an option to "see hidden files".

worth a try.

Dunno about the redhat/SuSE arrangements, but my "liquid" setup appears in kde control centre>look and feel>mosfet's liquid

you can specify global install for root and all users
/opt/kde/ or
local for individual users or root
