X11 adn/or KDE woes


While I have KDE working after a fashion, there is tons of stuff that doesn't work. For exampel, the config panel will not run. There are no error messages but it just never opens the panel. The only errors I can find are in .xsession-errors so I am guessing that those are the crux of the problem. However, this is a vanilla install of Mandrake 9.2 so what ever these errors mean must be the result of a faulty install. Here is the contents of that file:
Code:
startkde: Starting up...
kbuildsycoca running...
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
konsole: cannot chown /dev/pts/0.
Reason: Operation not permitted
konsole_grantpty: determined a strange device name `/dev/ptmx'.
konsole: chownpty failed for device /dev/pts/0::/dev/pts/0.
       : This means the session can be eavesdroped.
       : Make sure konsole_grantpty is installed in
       : /usr/bin/ and setuid root.
WARNING: No K menu group with X-KDE-BaseGroup=settings found ! Defaulting to Settings/
kcontrol: ERROR: Module kicker_config not found!
kcontrol: ERROR: Module kicker_config_appearance not found!
kcontrol: ERROR: Module kcmtaskbar not found!
It appears that a bunch of stuff is missing or perhaps ther eis a path problem. Eitherway can someone help me fix this? TIA.
