Moreover, we would like to know what is the make and model of your Video / Graphics Card/Adapter.

Moreover, also post the output of the following commands.

Code:
lsmod
Code:
lspci

What command are you using to start KDE?

What distro(s) have you used before?

Is this as simple as Debian doesn't by default provide a separate graphical run level?

And please do answer these Q's implied in the posts above:
  • How did you install KDE?
  • Did you try startx?
  • Do you have any display manager (gdm, kdm, or xdm) installed?

Most of the times, it is like people post their questions on numerous forums, and when the problem is solved, they even don't bother to take a look at the site, where the question is still unsolved.

Moreover, they simply stick to the site that helped them the first time.
But we all know that linuxquestions.org is great.
