Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 235972
/usr/bin/w or /usr/bin/who does not display user logged into KDE desktop environment
Last modified: 2008-02-04 06:55:12 EST
Description of problem:
User that is logged onto the KDE desktop environment is not listed
when issuing /usr/bin/who or /usr/bin/w.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Updated as of 04-10-2007.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into KDE via GDM.
2. Open terminal (Konsole).
3. Execute /usr/bin/who or execute /usr/bin/w.
User logged on through the graphical environment (GDM) into KDE are
not listed in the output:
[user@host cwd]# w
14:17:30 up 1 day, 19:00, 0 users, load average: 0.03, 0.05, 0.01
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHA
I would expect to see the user that is logged into the KDE desktop
environment listed as a logged on user as I am used to seeing on
previous releases of FC and RHEL.
Here is what the output looks like in a Gnome desktop session running
on FC 6:
[user@host cwd]$ w
23:55:36 up 35 min, 1 user, load average: 0.82, 0.39, 0.20
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT
user pts/0 :0.0 23:54 0.00s 2.34s 0.01s w
This bug is similar in behavior to Bugzilla Bug 214130.
