KDE screensaver cannot be configured on x86_64 for *some* (not all) users
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:49 EST
Description of problem:
kcontrol (FOR ONE USER ONLY) cannot obtain a list of screensavers and
screensaver cannot therefore be configured.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.wait until desktop is ready (sys initdefault is 3) and right-click on the
3.select "Configure Screen Saver"
The "Configure - KDE Control Module" window will appear, but it cannot find ANY
The "Configure - KDE Control Module" window will appear, and it will display a
list of installed screen savers to choose from.
I am pretty sure this an environment issue - but after RTFM'ing for weeks (this
started under late fc5), I'm still stuck.
This works correctly for most other non-priv. users and for root, so I suspect
an environment issue but have spent 3-5 weeks chasing it down with no luck.
I know it's a small thing but trying to find it is driving me batty.
could you please try following steps:
- login into KDE with login name which has this issue
- mv $HOME/.config HOME/.config.orig
- kbuildsycoca --noincremental
Does it fix the problem?
