kde and xfce do not like each other

I use the Plasma interface by default, but there are machines where I installed Xfce. I put it on my own machine too, but it just won't start.
But this is not entirely accurate. It works as a guest.

If I copy the config files created in the guest account to the appropriate locations in my home directory (rights, every*) and overwrite existing ones, it will not work for me. What should I watch?

It's a big pig to create a new user for this.

Could you be more specific? What happens as your regular user ?

The top and bottom panels are displayed. The mouse just spins. No wallpaper.
Clicking on the top left menu button displays the menu but no longer responds to it.
It does not remove any windows that appear.
Missing colorful header in menu bar. (File Edit etc)
It does not start any program. Only exits, performs logins.
