xdg is the "black magic" that lets you do things like "xdg-open a-pdf-file.pdf" and the associated pdf-viewer will come up (or it won't, if it's monday morning and you are under pressure)

But looking at r14-xdg-update, could it be that said account contains traces of kde3? If so, please remove .kde* - most likely you'll have to move .trinity to .trinity-old, then log in as the user and recreate the settings (or move them over one by one from .trinity-old, so you'll know what caused the error).

Oh, you did already a "chown USERNAME:GROUPNAME ~USERNAME" as root, didn't you?
