When you are on systemconfig kde4 menu and you want configure KDM settings and try save changes. You will get this error:

Unable to authenticate/execute the action: DBus Backend error: could not contact the helper. Connection error: Could not get owner of name 'org.kde.kcontrol.kcmkdm': no such name. Message error: Failed to setup environment correctly (code 7)

This problem is known. I obtain this solution here
