You don't have to set anything up. If you want to switch desktops, you can do something like "switchdesk kde"

The basic X-related files will automatically be created in the users home directory the first time they type "startx". If you need to configure certain things like the default desktop environment, default resolution, desktop layout, etc., give us more specifics so we can better answer your question.
