your personal KDE settings. If so, then it's a system-wide problem. But
I suspect it's in your files rather than system-wide, thus this
suggestion to try a new user."

I removed (purged) all desktop (lastly was installed gnome -similiar behavior - but why?) packages and installed kde-core package. Start time about 10-12 minutes.
Then I renamed Desktop and all .k* files in my home directory and ...
similiar results (next restart after Configuration wizard took about 10 minutes also)
Next, as Ken suggested, I create a new user and it works smootly!!!
(less than 2 minutes from startx to launch konsole). GREAT!
But why after renaming Desktop and .k* files still KDE starts so slowly?

"Maybe running fc-cache to rebuild the font cache helps"

Please clarify, I don't understand this,


"I would remove all the KDE packages including the configuration:

apt-get --purge remove kde.*

and then reinstall it, if nothing else helps."

I made this many times, but this dosn't help.
