Login does not give KDE option
Last modified: 2008-05-18 11:30:05 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no option to start a KDE session and the login manager doesn't
respect earlier selection of KDE Desktop. I am about to revert back to Fedora
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo telinit 5
Do you have KDE installed?
what's the output of
ls -l /usr/share/xsessions
If you click the user, on the bottom panel of the screen do you see a combo box
that says Sessions: [ ] with a drop drown menu of choices?
I would like to help you, but I reinstalled Fedora 8 due to the many problems
that I encountered with Fedora 9 including this one.
Okay, if you can reproduce the problem with a live image or you end up giving
Fedora 9 another try, let me know.
The things you described worked for me within the last couple of weeks, so the
scope of the problem is at least in some way localized to a subset of users and
I don't think I'll be able to fix it without help debugging the problem.
I'm sorry Fedora 9 was such a disappointment to you. Hopefully after a round of
updates, in a few weeks it will work for you better.
