Do "kcmshell4 --list" - if your module is listed it is found by the kcm 

If not, compare its .desktop file with 
eg. /usr/share/kde4/services/kcmnotify.desktop and see if you missed 
something like ParentApp or the ServiceTypes line.

If it is, maybe you have something wrong preventing the library loading.  Is 
your problematic code committed to svn?
