Hmm... See in share/apps/kdm/sessions same .desktop files like in GDM... May
be for KDM I can use same methods like in GDM? Just change 'Exec=start-kde'
to 'Exec=dbus-launch --exit-with-session start-kde'? Looking at hint I see
some problems... I do not know how to use sudo. And don't want read man
pages... Too lazy :(

Basically, copy init.d/gdm to init.d/kdm. Change the gdm commands to kdm
commands. Then follow this hint:
