Comment 2 Mark 2007-06-11 20:11:03 UTC
This is not a duplicate of that other bug!!
that other bug is the puplet icon that`s not being shown. that not the problem
here. in this case the puplet service itself isn't started (i need to start it
manually with /etc/init.d/puplet start)

the fix for this bug is:
ln -s /usr/bin/puplet ~/.kde/Autostart/puplet
yum -y install puplet :P (yes that`s right.. it wasn`t installed for me with the
default livecd installation)

So not a duplicate of tat bug.
re-opened bug.

Comment 3 Sebastian Vahl 2007-06-13 19:42:13 UTC
Just to make this clear: "puplet" is part of the package "pirut" and is not 
existing as an own package. The name of the service 
is /etc/init.d/yum-updatesd. yum-updatesd is disabled on the livecds (both, 
gnome and kde), but running normally after an installation. Also the 
package "pirut" is included in the livecd.
This bug is also present after a dvd installation of fedora with KDE. So it's 
not livecd only.

But we will have a look into this. I leave this bug assigned to me for now.

Comment 4 Sebastian Vahl 2007-06-13 21:24:45 UTC
Well, is KDE 3.5. already using XDG_CONFIG_DIRS or /etc/xdg/autostart? The 
only thing I could find so far is this (one year old ) discussion about 
implementing it: http://marc.info/?l=freedesktop-xdg&m=117278186111444&w=2
eg. http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=114296588628282&w=2

Also the current autostart specification from fd.o says: 
"Example: If $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS is not set the system wide Autostart Directory 
is /etc/xdg/autostart/"

But when I remove XDG_CONFIG_DIRS from /etc/kde/env/env.sh /etc/xdg/autostart 
is still not used.

Comment 5 Mark 2007-06-14 22:50:46 UTC
What i needed to do is run puplet. (by typing puplet in the console)
also i have 4 entries in /etc/xdg/autostart and none of them are started by
default (like you said).

If there is anything you want me to test for you on kde?
just give me a sign and i will test it for you.

As discussed in kde-sig-meeting (2007-06-19) I reassign it against kdelibs.
