I have no idea why, but when I tried to login this morning a window popped up while in splash screen "Could not start D-Bus. Can you call qdbus?" which when clicked returned me to kdm.
I have consulted answers to people who had a similar problem, but none of the advice helped in my case. I tried changing the ownership of all the files in my home folder, I deleted ~/.XAuthority. No dice. Now I'm at loss for what to do next.
If it's any help here's .xsession-errors:
