running apps as root

TDE 3.5.13 Debian Squeeze

I was trying to run   'kcron' as root, from a root prompt in konsole. 'kcron' is 
not found, I have to use full path '/opt/trinity/bin/kcron'. This brings up kcron 
but trying to add a cron job causes a crash, the crash handler pops up.

I get this info from the terminal:

"In file /build/buildd/kdeadmin-trinity-3.5.13/./kcron/ktview.cpp, line 372: Out 
of memory
KCrash: crashing... crashRecursionCounter = 2
KCrash: Application Name = kcron path = <unknown> pid = 4347
kdeinit: Got EXEC_NEW 'drkonqi' from socket.
Could not load library! Trying exec....
kdeinit: PID 4413 terminated."

I noticed that using the 'export' command, there is no reference to KDEDIR(S) or 
PATH to the Trinity stuff.

 I installed the metapackage  'kdebase-trinity', 'kdepim-trinity' and a few apps, 
not the full DE.

It seems like kcron can't find a library.  what sets up the TDE environment for 
root ?
