unable to kde login

I have SLES 11.3 (x86_64).
When I try to connect to this server via ssh or console without kde everything is OK.
But when I try to connect to this server through kde, in /var/log/messages I can see:

Mar 25 10:03:04 server1 kdm: :0[6560]: Cannot open ConsoleKit session: Unable to open session: Failed to execute program /lib64/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper: Success
Mar 25 10:03:04 server1 kdm: :0[6560]: Client start failed
Mar 25 10:03:04 server1 kdm: :0[6560]: Cannot close ConsoleKit session: Unable to close session: no session open

# ls -l /lib64/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
-rwsr-x--- 1 root messagebus 47912 Oct 15 2012 /lib64/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper

Can you help me to resolve my problem?

I resolved my problem by:

# chmod o+x /lib64/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
# chmod o+r /lib64/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
# chmod o+s /lib64/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
# /etc/init.d/xdm restart
