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):
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.
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.
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
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.
OK, but didn't have to bother old friend perl for that. Emacs was enough. :-)
