There is a directory, whose name might vary from system to system, that contains a file for each window or desktop manager that can be used to login. When you're using gdm, there is one startup directory, when you're using KDE's kdm or the X Window System's xdm, there is another location.

On some systems, that location might be the directory /etc/gdm/, /etc/gdm/sessions, or something similar. possibly /etc/X11/gdm. Look for the correct directory on your system. The files in that directory ought to correspond to what you're seeing now as window manager options when the login manager runs. Add an entry in this directory for KDE or whatever you're using. For KDE, create a file called kde or KDE, make it executable (chmod +x KDE), and put something in it that can run. One appropriate entry might be a single line that points to the KDE startup:

/usr/bin/startkde
