Hi all.

I'm not sure if this is the proper place for this posting, but I am trying
to determine what is causing my KDE problems.

Here's what I get

u85 50     ps -ef |grep kde
bjwalker 11622 11076  0 17:45 pts/2    00:00:00 grep kde

u85 51% startkde
xset:  bad font path element (#104), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax
startkde: Starting up...

After about 5 minutes of waiting, thats all I get.

I've looked around to see where else I may have kde things running and think
I've killed them all.  I've also moved my .kde directory and allowed for the
build of a new one.  I'm currently in a gnome session but I would like to
run KDE apps like Kile for example.

Any help of where to start looking or things to do to help diagonose the
problem would be appreciated.
