I think you missed a "." in the path. The real path to the KDE directory
is /home/<your log on>/.kde - please note the ".kde" instead of "kde"
here. The reason for your problem might be that you have done some system
configuration with sudo and a graphical editor like kate or with
konqueror. Now the files mentioned in the error messages are owned by
root and therefore not writeable for you. Change the ownership (of all
files in your home directory) with this command in a terminal (konsole):
sudo chown -R <your log on>:<your log on> /home/<your log on>
Now, to prevent this happening again, you should do system configuration
with kdesu instead of sudo unless you use command line programs.
