Description Rex Dieter 2010-10-13 18:55:50 UTC
Something somewhere broke our default wallpaper recently, and Laughlin from plasma-desktop-appletsrc in kde-settings isn't getting used for new users. Thinking that setting this via a plasma update script would perhaps be a better approach (bonus that it migrates upgraders to to new wallpaper too). If we do go this route
Comment 1 nucleo 2010-10-13 20:26:01 UTC
I confirm this problem on Fedora 13 with KDE 4.5.2 installed from kde-testing. But on LiveCD with kde 4.5.1 Fedora-14-Beta-i686-Live-KDE.iso KDE starts with default wallpaper for new user with clean ~/.kde.
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2010-10-13 20:59:57 UTC
I think this change is what breaks using our preconfigured plasma-desktop-appletsrc: http://websvn.kde.org/?view=revision&revision=1169026 "backport: remove any stale config data to avoid accidentally merging old and existing containment configs" Looks like this worked just by accident (at least since that 00-defaultLayout.js exists). So that'd be why this changes with 4.5.2, should we try reverting that change as a quick hack? It's clearly not the correct fix though.
Comment 3 Sandro Mathys 2010-10-14 12:06:16 UTC
Not sure if this is the same problem or even no bug at all: as nucleo said the default wallpaper works on the livecd - but that's only true for the first monitor, i.e. the second is blank/black too. Tested with F14 Final TC1.1 livecd (didn't try an installed system).

More goodies to help write a script, http://techbase.kde.org/KDE_System_Administration/PlasmaDesktopScripting
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2010-10-14 14:55:35 UTC
OK, looks like making plasma themes to set the wallpaper is the way to go, will require adding stuff to laughlin-kde-theme (and goddard-kde-theme), and kde-settting mods to plasmarc to use those by default.
Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2010-10-14 16:40:08 UTC
I really don't like that solution. :-( This is yet another "let's take KDE's theme and customize 1 thing" "theme" like that Fedora-KDE icon theme we've finally gotten rid of. It also means that if you change to another Plasma theme, you lose the wallpaper and have to set it manually.
