You need to create two new files. So, the first one you created was
Second one, go to /usr/share/xsessions
kdesu kate beryl-kde.desktop
This will create a new file as root in the /usr/share/xsessions
directory named beryl-kde.desktop
Copy the content of the file I wrote in the previous message in here.
Save the file, and close kate. Logout to KDM. Now there should be a
session available called Beryl-KDE
