Try omitting the -multiwindow parameter. That way, the KDE desktop will
be started in one Windows window that you can manipulate normally. If you
also want to open local X clients in multiwindow mode, you can start
another (windowed) instance of X for your KDE desktop (i.e., use "run XWin
:1.0 -clipboard") and ssh with DISPLAY set to :1.0 to start your KDE
