Description Sebastian Vahl 2008-04-06 17:33:31 EDT
Description of problem:
In kdebase3 we use a symbolic link to define a default face icon:

# own %{_datadir}/apps/kdm/faces
mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/apps/kdm/faces
pushd %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/apps/kdm/faces
ln -sf ../pics/users/default1.png .default.face.icon

kdebase4 is missing this symbolic link. So if we ever have a theme with a user 
list, it would be good to have a default face icon for all users.

This file should still be there, only it's %{_kde4_appsdir} now instead 
of %{_datadir}/apps.
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-07 08:40:41 EDT
Oh, actually you mean the symbolic link itself is missing. That's easy to add.

Indeed. I think we've only missed to also add this from kdebase.spec to 
kdebase-workspace.spec. (I've really forgotten about that when packaging

I'm going to fix this.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-04-07 10:23:13 EDT
could also be added to kde-settings (so we don't force a rebuild of all of
kdebase-workspace).  Has the added benefit of allowing sites to "theme" their
face icons (by providing their own kde-settings).
Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-07 10:32:45 EDT
Well, the icons are in kdebase-workspace, so we'd either leave a dangling 
symlink in kde-settings or have to require kdebase-workspace from kde-settings.
Comment 7 Ngo Than 2008-04-07 10:44:58 EDT
we have to avoid dangling symlink as we can. I'm against dangling symlink in 
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2008-04-07 10:52:50 EDT
imo, dangling symlink would be harmless.  the face icons are only useful when/if
kdebase-workspace is installed anyway.

Shrug, like I said in irc, either way works. :)
