    It is given by the value assigned to ClientLogFile in /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc. If you didn't change this value, it will be in your home directory - assuming you log in with kdm.
    Code:
    grep ClientLogFile /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc
    It is normally .xsession-errors btw.

    If the file name begins with ".", then it is hidden. There isn't any special "hide" permission. It's just a tradition, that files with name beginning "." are not normally shown in listing.
