Sounds like config files are not being written correctly. I would look
at all of the ".*" folders in your home directory and see if they are
all writable by you. This was likely caused by you trying out startx
while in a root non-login terminal, which used "su" to get into. I did
this once with firefox, and it caused it to fail silently when I tried
to start it.
4 - I cannot mount a partition (both from command line and from
desktop) the answer is "Only root can mount a device" (all
permissions are the same as before)
I would check out "groups <username>" and see whether you are a member
of the plugdev group.
5 - I am not able to become root (both in konsole and term) the answer
is "Authentication failed" (consolekit is merged)
Wheel group for this one.
