Since it doesn't get to the login screen couldn't one just type kdm or gdm 
directly into the terminal and see the errors which would cause it to fail?  
kubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-desktop should have pulled everything they needed 
to run properly including the desktop manager for each of the modes and in 
fact should have given a requester upon installation of which dm would be the 
default.  At least it always has during each of the installs I have done for
