Summary says it all.
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-08 17:04:42 EDT
The problem is that KSplash is set up using the kstartupconfig4 hack. The comment at the top says: > This utility helps to have some configuration options available in startkde > without the need to launch anything linked to KDE libraries (which may need > some time to load). Those settings are cached using kdostartupconfig4 and then kstartupconfig4 only reads them. Does running kdostartupconfig4 to force regenerating the cache fix it? The problem is that kstartupconfig4 only checks the files kdostartupconfig4 wrote into "startupconfigfiles" for updates, and that kdostartupconfig4 only writes the files in ~/.kde/share/config there. I see 2 possible solutions: a. hacking that kstartupconfig system to understand Kiosk-style settings b. simply changing the default in startkde in the redhat-startkde patch: startkde.cmake contains: ksplashrc KSplash Theme Default changing that to: ksplashrc KSplash Theme Waves should be enough to fix this issue. I'm inclined to use option b (simpler and safer, also considering we're in a freeze).
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-09 12:12:57 EDT
I guess there's an option c: read the default option out of the kiosky settings and copy it there with some sed magic in startkde.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-09 13:59:24 EDT
Should be fixed in kdebase-workspace-4.0.3-11.fc9.
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-09 14:27:13 EDT
(FYI, option c is the one which has been implemented.)
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-12 01:51:40 EDT
Should be fixed. If it's still not working, then please reopen it and we'll have to work on implementing option a.
