assuming you have kde installed, and Debian is installed correctyly, you can try this as root: with your favorite
editor, edit/create your ~/.xsession, making kde your default desktop environment. Example:

#vim /home/your_user_name/.xsession

then copy/paste this:


xhost +localhost
exec kdestart


#dpkg --purge gdm
#apt-get clean

#apt-get install kdm


after you come back, you should have kdm, and kde should start by default, once you login.
