can't run konsole

My linux server runs on redhat centos. I can use kde and other qt-based software remotely with vncserver/vncviewer.
The problem is : most software can't start correctly when i login locally on the server, even the konsole. Nothing will happen when the cursor stops jumping. What's wrong with the kde enviroment or qt lib.
BTW:I havn't made any special configuration. just atuo-update it periodically.

RE: can't run konsole

I had the same problem with a PC at work, left me cluesless though.

Did you perhaps changed anything by running the xhost command? I'm thinking that the process is actually there but not on your screen to see.

Try 'ps aux | grep konsole' to see if it's still there.

Yes, the the process is actually there although it doesn't show itself.

I haven't running xhost. And i can run any gnome based software correctly.

Another syndrome:
some windows show but don't repaint. For example, kcalc show its main window. But if you move the window or try to select a menu, the window do not response and can only be forced to quit.
