I know that it doesn't matter anymore, but still. This is my ~/.gvimrc which
can explain what you were supposed to do:

        if has("gui_kde")
           set guifont=Andale\ Mono/12/-1/5/50/0/0/0/0/0
           set guifont=DejaVu\ Sans\ Mono\ 10

I believe part of the bad reputation kvim got was caused by people being too
lazy to do things slightly different than gvim/GTK (which does things again
differently than gvim/Athena).
