I'm not good with KDE at all but this might help.

Right click on desktop -> Desktop Settings -> Layout: Folder View -> OK.
If it doesn't work, go back to Desktop Settings and change the location to your desktop folder in Location.

If that doesn't help look in the KDE Forum.

Thanks for the details.

IF you have the time could you compare the old kde folder and files to the new ones and tell us the differences? The diff cmd should work.

Code:
diff file1 file2
