Welll ... by default, it appears to be commented out in both 
/etc/trinity/kdm/kdmrc and /etc/trinity/kdm/kdmdistrc and the comments say 
that kwin is the default ...

# Window manager binary name, if window decorations are desired. "" means 
no window manager support.
# Default is "kwin"

I can add it anyway and see if that works (meaning something else is 
broken) but to which file should it be added?
