I have installed Slackware without kde. How do I install kde without installing slack again?

Easiest way: insert the slackware cd/dvd, cd to /slackware/kde and run
Code:
installpkg *.txz
(as root)
Then run pkgtool and run the script for wmconfig to select xinitrc.kde
You can also download the packages, no difference.

If you have slackpkg already configured you can achieve the same with a simple
Code:
slackpkg install kde

if you have configured slackpkg you can also install its package set with a simple command
Code:
slackpkg install kde

Try to show us some actual error messages, we can not think for you.
