Press CONTROL+ALT+F1

Enter username and password
type startx -- :1 &

this should bring you to KDE, now use the GUI to make the changes (you didn't mention your distro!)

I don't think you did the command right. I tried it against my computer with and without amperstand , in and out of an Xorg session.

The command is startx -- :1

please, check again, otherwise, try to do it in X, and post the entire console session, input and output.
