How can I use KDE services without actually running the whole plasma workspace ?

I want to use awesomewm but I couldn't manage to run KDE services without actually running plasma-desktop. My point is I don't want to run everything under xterm(or other terminals) and want to use KDE's GUI tools and services(like network manager, device mounter etc.)

Any help will be appreciated.

@sr_, yes, unfortunately, it doesn't work for me. I did exactly what's explained in that link. KDE services just don't start. – sinan Dec 17 '12 at 16:04
