I don't really know how any of this works, but I grepped /etc for likely 
suspects, and came up with this one:


Mine contains one line:

$ cat X11/default-display-manager

I'm guessing yours probably has gdm or xdm in it or something, so neither kdm 
nor kdm-kde4 will run.  It sounds like a bug that dpkg-reconfigure didn't set 
it up correctly, if that proves to be the case.

But this is all intuition, and no first-hand knowledge, so I could be way off
