I'm 5 years out of date with kde. The last time I had kppp, it used an
executable called kwvdial. Just looking in a distro, I see /usr/bin/kppp
& /usr/sbin/kppp. Try this
type -p kppp
This should return a path to kppp
ls -l path to kppp & check permissions. make it 4711 or 4755 if it's a
script.

Believe me, that can happen on _any_ kernel.
