OpenKiosk on Kubuntu

Hi ..

i'm trying to build up a small internetcafe with OpenKiosk
The server "NodeView 2.0.3" is still running. I made some changes to the
configure-script. There were some hardcoded paths. For more details to
the server .. just ask  Wink

But the problem now is the client-tool "opkdekiosk2.0.6". I tried to
install it on a fresh Kubuntu 6.06. My steps:

1. ./configure (it works)
2. make (also no problems)
3. make install (this step aborted with the following error-message):

1  /usr/bin/install -c -p -m 644 ./kioskclientrc
2  /usr/bin/install: reguläre Datei
"/usr/local/kde/share/config/kioskclientrc" kann nicht angelegt werden:
No such file or directory
3  make[3]: *** [install-data-local] Fehler 1
4  make[3]: Leaving directory
5  make[2]: *** [install-am] Fehler 2
6  make[2]: Leaving directory
7  make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Fehler 1
8  make[1]: Leaving directory
9  make: *** [install-recursive] Fehler 1

For testing purposes i've done a "mkdir config" manually
(/usr/local/kde/share/config). Then i've done a "make install" and there
were no errors. But at the end the client "opkdekiosk" does not work. I
could start the tool, but i couldn't save any preferences
(server-ip-address, client-name ...). I tried it also with "./configure
--prefix=/usr". But that also doesnt solve the problem.

I found the config-dir in my home dir "/home/michael/.kde/share/config"
Do i have to install tools like this in my personal .kde-dir ?
I think there are some Kubuntu-specific-paths that are not implemented
in this installation of opkdekiosk.

now ... i need your help.
