Description Rex Dieter 2006-01-19 14:50:37 UTC
As referenced in /usr/bin/startkde, kdebase should create/own the directories: 
that contain kde-specific source'd startup and shutdown scripts, respectively.

Comment 1 Ngo Than 2006-02-15 17:47:52 UTC
I have added both env and shutdown directories under /etc/kde/ 
in next kdebase rebuild. Of course, the startkde script will be adjusted to 
look the scripts there.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-02-15 18:36:17 UTC
In order to stay compatible with upstream, IMO, it would be safest to modify
startkde to look in *both* /usr and /etc/kde for env/ and shutdown/

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-04-11 14:57:41 UTC
Ngo, can you respond to my comment #3?  Seen a few users get confused because
kde docs tell them to use /usr/env and /usr/shutdown, and that doesn't work on
FC-5.  (-:

Comment 5 Ngo Than 2006-04-12 12:49:09 UTC
yes, it should still look in /usr/env and /usr/shutdown to stay compatible with
upstream. It's now fixed in CVS. For FC5, i will fix it soon.

Thanks for your report.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2006-06-22 17:17:42 UTC
Just checked cvs, and the only dir ownership I see is in -devel branch, and
there it's only /etc/kde/env/ (missing /etc/kde/shutdown/).  

The patch (to use /etc/kde/{env,shutdown) instead of /usr/{env,shutdown} )
appears to be applied to all branches (FC-4, FC-5, devel).

While you're at it, I'd recommend creating/owning (empty) /usr/env,
/usr/shutdown dirs as well, but that's your call.

Ping, EasyFix here.
