Default KDE 4 unable to lock screen or switch user

Hi all:

Running KDE 4 on Kubuntu 7.10 I can not lock the session, nor can I switch
users. Attempting to lock the session blanks the screen and presents me with
a dialog that says: Unable to lock the session, reason: No appropriate
greeter configured. Where do I configure said greeter?

When I attempt to switch users, I get presented with the runner applet. Not
quite what I had in mind.

thanks

sudo apt-get install kdm-kde4

When installing the package, it should ask you what default kdm to
use. I chose the new one and upon restarting, couldn't log in. You
may want to try the new one to see if it will work. If you try
kdm-kde4 and it doesn't work then you should restart in recovery mode
and type this in your shell:

sudo apt-get remove kdm-kde4
sudo apt-get install kdm-kde4

When given the option to choose which default kdm to use, choose "kdm"
and not "kdm-kde4". User switching and screen locking is working for
me without kdm-kde4 being the default.

HTH,
Andrew
