I installed Gentoo and from under it installed KDE (with all its applications) according to this instruction. But when I rebooted my computer, I didn't see the classic KDE interface (window for entering the password), but instead again the command interpreter.

How to get into a comfortable KDE environment?

Welcome to gentoo forums!

You installed plasma-meta? In your system is installed sddm? If yes sddm is in video group?
You can post /var/log/sddm.log with wgetpaste?

Yes, I installed plasma-meta and set profile value:
Code:
default/linux/amd64/17.1/desktop/plasma (stable)


I think profile 'plasma (stable)' set all needed USE flags and I nothing additionally add to /etc/portage/make.conf:
Code:
USE="-bindist X acl amd64 symlink policykit udev udisks alsa dbus elogind -consolekit -systemd"


I didn't install sddm specifically, considering that it will be installed together with kde (because its flag is listed in the list of flags of the KDE-plasma/plasma-meta package).

Did I have to add the flags for the KDE-plasma/plasma-meta package myself (and not rely on the selected profile)?

Well, did you set up xdm to start sddm?

I executed strictly according to the instructions in the topic, so I didn't set up xdm to start sddm.

Is there a complete KDE installation instruction?

Changing the xdm config is mentioned in the "Display Manager" section.

The other thing that bites is sddm needing the user to be in the video group - covered in the sddm wiki page.
