Installed KDE 3.2 and no more lock screen...

When I right click on my desktop, I can choose Lock Screen.
However, since I installed KDE 3.2, I get an error message instead of
a locked screen
The error message says:
Will not lock screen as unlocking would be impossible:
No appropriate greeter plugin configured.

What do I do to get my lock back, I really need it.

I use debian and found the same problem when upgrading KDE from 3.1 to 3.2.

I found out that the greeter plugins are actually provided by the kdm package even if you are not something else (xdm, gdm) or none at all (starting from startx).

Install the suse package for kdm and I think it should work.

It should really be in the kdebase packages in my opinion!!
