Or, at the login screen, click the sessions button. Then change the desktop, when you log in it will ask you if you want to keep the setting, answer accordingly.

For those looking at this post for a solution:

I ended up taking XavierP's advice and changing the default by going to the login screen, clicking "Session", selecting the "KDE" radio button, and selecting "Yes" when the prompt came up asking if I wanted to make this choice the default login.
