Description Martí­n Marqués 2005-08-12 18:56:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
When ever kdm stats it gives an error about not finding /usr/share/apps/kdm/themes/Bluecurve (which doesn't exist). All this with the last kde upgrade (I think it was 10/Agust/2005).

Also, any configuration of kdm will result in no change at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kdm

Actual Results:  Error about not finding /usr/share/apps/kdm/themes/Bluecurve

Expected Results:  There should be a Bluecurve theme.

Note that this only happens with the latest kdebase upgrade. The
/etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc contains lines:


but the directory /usr/share/apps/kdm/themes/Bluecurve does not exist.

P.S. On FC4 this directory is provided by edhat-artwork-0.122-10, but
redhat-artwork-0.117-1 on FC3 does not have it.
Comment 2 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-08-14 10:00:42 EDT
It seems to me to be a problem with the new KDE base pointing to the wrong
location.  I don't think it is worth the effort backporting the FC4 changes in
redhat-artwork since older versions of KDE worked fine.  
Comment 3 Martí­n Marqués 2005-08-14 19:11:49 EDT
So, what should be done to solve this BUG? Is there a way to fix kdmrc so that 
it finds what it has to find? 
I also found (don't know if it's related with this bug) that some changes done 
to KDM through kcontrol don't take effect (users to show with there 
fotographs, etc.). 
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2005-08-15 02:06:49 EDT
it seems kdmtheme is enable in FC3. You should please type the following
commandline (need root) to fix this problem:

perl -pi -e 's|UseTheme=true|UseTheme=false|g' /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc

it's now fixed in CVS. Thanks for your report.

Comment 5 Martí­n Marqués 2005-08-15 08:57:02 EDT
OK, but didn't have to bother old friend perl for that. Emacs was enough. :-)
