Practically no KDE apps work on my computer.

I run Ubuntu but have Kubuntu-desktop installed for the sake of programs. After updating to Intrepid, though, several programs are broken, including lyx, kate, and konqueror. They all fail to launch, running them from a terminal, nothing happens. I was reading that lyx is currently broken under Qt 4.4 but I don't know if that has anything to do with the other programs, or how to go back to Qt 4.3 to fix Lyx, which I desperately need.

This is what koqueror says, then just sits there:

chaz@singularity:~$ konqueror
konqueror(6424) KToolInvocation::klauncher: klauncher not running... launching kdeinit
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/klauncher
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/bin/kded4
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/bin/kbuildsycoca4
kbuildsycoca4 running...
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kconf_update
kdeinit4: preparing to launch 
konqueror(6424) KonqHistoryManager::loadHistory: The history version doesn't match, aborting loading 
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kconf_update
This is what kate says, then just sits there:

chaz@singularity:~$ kate
kate(6450): createDoc
kate(6450) KateSessionManager::KateSessionManager: LOCAL SESSION DIR:  "/home/chaz/.kde/share/apps/kate/sessions"
kate(6450) KateApp::initKate: Setting KATE_PID: ' 6450 '
kate(6450) KMimeTypeFactory::parseMagic: Now parsing  "/usr/share/mime/magic"

chaz@singularity:~$ lyx

chaz@singularity:~$ konsole
wtf? note that I'm actually running gnome.

Maybe you'd be better off uninstalling KDE all together and then just reinstalling the dependencies of those specific programs. I'm guessing at worst you just need to install some KDE/Qt base libraries. I'm sure you can find which ones those programs need and download them individually.

This is assuming, of course, you plan on just using GNOME.
