It seems generally that your paths must be wrong since it is installed. What is
your $PATH and can a KDE user compare to their own?

The fact that neither which nor whereis return it is normal, FYI. Well, perhaps
which should if your paths are correct. But whereis searches only certain

Also try running the command again with the full path, i.e.
/`usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu konqueror` just to ensure you have no other
