That is right sir, thugh kde package was installed,
but 
% echo "exec startkde" > ~/.xinitrc
was still required to be passed to X server.

The display is as if the screen is diagonally right
shifted (i.e. there is empty space at the left and at
the bottom)
I am using VESA driver. Is further improvement
possible so that display is stretched to whole screen.
I have googled about this problem, but so far the
solution seems to be a little away.
Regards
