Have you tried a clean ~/.kde dir? When it comes to importing config files
from another major KDE version, _some_ things work. I had to completely
reconfigure nearly everything from KDE1->KDE2 and from KDE2->KDE3.
tar cvfz ~/kdesettings.tgz ~/.kde*
to make all changes undoable and "rm -rf ~/.kde*" completely. Re-login and see
if it works. You have a complete backup of everything you need to reconfigure
If it really works, you may want to restore the .kde-directories and delete
things file for file, first the kicker settings, then maybe kwm settings...
If it doesn't work, just restore your old .kde-directories and search for a
software solution. Look at the ML archive, there are plenty of KDE3-Versions
for debian, 3.0.5 is on the way at the moment, maybe something is broken
because of this.
