Description Need Real Name 2004-07-05 11:46:36 EDT
Description of problem: 
If a user runs switchdesk, the dialog window opens with several 
radio buttons; the pre-selected default is GNOME.  Clicking 
"OK" (without touching anything else) should cause it to write an 
~/.Xclients-default which starts GNOME; instead, it writes an 
~/.Xclients-default which starts KDE. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Run switchdesk 
2. Click OK 
3. cat ~/.Xclients-default 
Actual results: 
#! /bin/bash 
# Created by Red Hat Desktop Switcher 
WMPATH="/usr/bin /opt/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/X11R6/bin" 
for wm in $WMPATH ; do 
        [ -x $wm/startkde ] && exec $wm/startkde 
exit 1 
Expected results: 
# Created by Red Hat Desktop Switcher 
exec gnome-session 
(I don't know why a GNOME session doesn't get the whole "WMPATH" 
treatment as do other desktops, but that's not relevant here.)

it's fixed in 4.0.6, which is available in rawhide.
