KDE 3.3.1 cannot be started by non-root user!

Thanks for the reply Randy. What I meant by "blah blah" was just the 
normal messages KDE spits out when it's shut down, I didn't think they 
were worth writing down. The real substance was in the error message 
that I saw at the top of my screen.

Anyways, I have only this one LFS-Unstable system and so I unfortunatley 
cannot test this out on other systems. I don't think this is a very 
serious issue, I believe it's one that could be easily worked around, 
because it would appear it's merely a permissions problem. However I 
lack the necessary linux-guruness to solve it on my own ;) I know it 
would help you to get a log of what exactly happened, but I don't know 
where KDE keeps its logs, if it does in fact use any. Nothing relevant 
can be found in my X11 logs in /var/log/Xorg*.
