If you have the PyKDE tarball (http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/pykde),
there are some example programs in the examples/ directory. The templates/ 
directory has some simple program templates - in templates/annotated/ they 
have comments, in templates/basic/, they're the same templates with comments 

As far as documentation, docs/ contains the PyKDE docs in HTML - the class 
reference contains the modules, classes and methods supported, but only 
provides information about names and argument types in Python. For 
information on what classes and methods actually do, refer to the KDE-API 
docs. On my distribution (SuSE) they're located at /usr/share/docs/KDE3-API 
and also at $KDEDIR/share/doc/HTML/en/kdelibs-apidocs for English docs - 
change the "en" part of the path for other languages, but I'm not sure how 
widely translated they are (on SuSE $KDEDIR = /opt/kde3 - it varies on other 
distributions). I believe they're installed as part of the kdelibs3-doc or 
kdelibs3-devel packages; they're also available online in the Developer's 
section at kde.org.

For some specifics uses, there may be KDE tutorials or other docs as well, 
although they'll be written for C++, just as the kdelibs docs (or Qt docs) 

Lastly, you can always ask questions here.

The biggest difference from PyQt is that PyKDE apps require a KApplication 
instead of QApplication object.
