find the program 

whereis kwalletmanager

Which on my breezy system returns

kwalletmanager: /usr/bin/kwalletmanager /usr/bin/X11/kwalletmanager

The first being the link in the binary executable path and the second being 
the actual program.

Then using the terminal navigate to ~/.kde/Autostart

cd ~/.kde/Autostart

and create the link.

ln -S /usr/bin/kwalletmanager

or if you prefer the gui, split the Konqueror pane by right-clicking the 
status bar and choosing the split you prefer.  In one pane navigate to 
~/.kde/Autostart, and in the other /usr/bin.

Find kwalletmanager in /usr/bin, and drag and drop it to the ~/.kde/Autostart 
pane.  Konqueror prompts for Copy, Move or Link to.  Choose link to.

Once you get used to it, the command line method is the easiest.
