Description Sebastian Vahl 2008-03-11 19:00:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Due to the change of making PackageKit the default graphical package manager 
I've tried to get it also working inside KDE. To test the update applet I've 
copied /usr/share/gnome/autostart/gnome-pk-update-icon.desktop 
to /etc/xdg/autostart and logged in into a clean user account. Right after the 
login plasma is crashing (backtrace is attached in the next comment)
If I remove the line "NotShowIn=KDE;XFCE;" and re-login and/or clean up the 
user account plasma isn't crashing anymore.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. copy /usr/share/gnome/autostart/gnome-pk-update-icon.desktop 
to /etc/xdg/autostart
2. Login into KDE
Actual results:
plasma is crashing

Expected results:
plasma should not crash

Additional info:
This is mostly a tracking bug for an upstream bug. So fedora specific 
discussions could be done here.

Upstream has closed the bug a few minutes ago with this changes:
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-13 07:56:15 EDT
Is this fix worth backporting to our packages? I'm not sure, as the bug is only 
reproducible with the NotShowIn, but maybe other applets with a legitimate 
NotShowIn=KDE can trigger this?

the fix is now included in kdebase-workspace-4_0_2-7_fc9
