Question KDE doesnt show in KDM


I recently used Smart Package Manager to install KDE(well i think its installed) then was sure to run both SuSEconfig & ldconfig.

I then ran yast and configured my system to use KDM instead of GDM.

Upon rebooting I noticed KDM is working however KDE is not listed in the session list to choose and I have no idea why.

Could someone please help me decifer if
a) kde is properly installed
b) if i need to make any other setting changes to make KDE appear in the session list of KDM

Cheers

:P Yup

Good trouble shooting :P

But yea, when you have an issue like that, always check what packages you have installed (especilly when it comes to DE's)
