Description of problem:
following problem is in xinitrc:
selection of session type from KDM does not work
for working with new switchdesk-4.0.0 or newer, it should be done some
change in Xsession
The patch file is attached here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
start KDM as X login manager
select for example KDE as session type
Created attachment 97806 [details]
xinitrc patch file
patch file is attached
Other than the gratuitous shebang line change, the rest of the
patch appears to be fairly sane/safe. I'll review it against
the current sources soon, and probably apply it.
Hm, right now I see two different copies of Xsession -
/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession and /etc/kde/kdm/Xsession and the difference
between the two is exactly that the kdm one appears to have the
attached patch applied (including the "gratuitous shebang line change"
A slightly modified version of the attached patch has been applied
to CVS and will be in xinitrc-3.38-1 in rawhide soon.
New packages built in dist-fc2-hold, pending unlocking of dist-fc2,
so packages can be moved over and sync'd with rawhide.
Thanks also Aleksey for the reminder!
Please do not forget to remove the outdated duplicate
/etc/kde/kdm/Xsession from kdebase now.
Thanks Aleksey, I've filed bug #119503 to track the removal of
the kdebase Xsession script.
