Description Marco Foglia 2000-03-02 16:25:41 UTC
kbgndwm is executed too early in /usr/bin/startkde.

When the check for the $HOME/.kde directory is reached in
this script,

> if [ ! -d $HOME/.kde ]; then
>   cp -a /etc/skel/.kde $HOME
> fi

kbgndwm has (sometimes) already written
$HOME/.kde/share/config/kbgndwmrc. So /etc/skel/.kde is
not copied. :-(

Solution:
- put kbgndwm startup just behind the .kde check
   (leave it where it was originally)
- put .kde check at beginning of file

This problem is seems to be present in 6.2b too.

This was fixed in 6.2
