I'm not a KDE person, so this is just a wild guess looking at the
files that are installed by kdelibs. I have a directory full of
protocols and other stuff in /usr/share/service. In particular, I see
/usr/share/services/http.protocol. Maybe you're missing this file or
the applications are looking in the wrong location. strace might help
here. Something like:

strace -f -eopen kdesktop

And then look at all the places it's trying to open and see if they
match your installation.
