Move your greendao plugin before the kotlin plugin in your app build.gradle like below:

apply plugin: 'org.greenrobot.greendao'

apply plugin: 'kotlin-kapt'
apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'

This is caused by that Greendao generate DaoSession and other Dao files at a default path:"app/build/generated/source/greendao/", which cannot be found by kotlin.

So you just need to change the Dao path by adding this code to your module Gradle file:

greendao {
    targetGenDir 'src/main/java' 

Then, you can find the Dao files like DaoSesson.java are generated in your project path 'src/main/java'. Now Kotlin can find the DaoSession.

Hope can help.
