go to your home directory and then follow these steps:
1.) at the command prompt, type: ls -a
2.) see if there is a .xinitrc file there (please make sure there's a dot in front of the file name)
3.) if it's not there, create the file. if it's there, use your favorite text editor to open it.
4.) if you created a new file, type "startkde" without the inverted commas. save the file and then restart your X session.
5.) if you opened an existing file, comment out all the lines (by putting a # in front of each line). then at the end, type "startkde" without the inverted commas. save the file and then restart your X session. note: do not comment out the line with the command "startkde".
this should let you use kde every time you start your X session.
