That's a wrong answer.
You should do this :
lehel@jungle:~$ which kde
so the .xinitrc line shoud be :
kwm is only the windowmanager part of KDE
lehel@jungle:~$ cat /usr/bin/kde
# DEFAULT KDE STARTUP SCRIPT ( KDE-1.1 )
# initialize the configuration first.
# Start the common desktop tools in the background.
# The sleeps reduce disk usage during startup.
# kaudioserver will put itself in the background automagically
(exec kwmsound) &
# Add -ncols 96 after kfm if using a 8-bit display
(exec kfm) &
(exec krootwm) &
(exec kpanel) &
(exec kbgndwm) &
# finally, give the session control to the window manager
As you can see, /usr/bin/kde executes some other progs too (like kfm or kpanel),
which are essential parts of KDE.
