Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458207
/etc/kde/kdm/backgroundrc wallpaper file missing
Last modified: 2009-02-19 06:42:40 EST
Description of problem: "2-sulphuric-waves-day.1600.png" - the wallpaper image of the Oxygen KDM theme - is missing.
cat /var/log/kdm.log says krootimage(26358) KBackgroundRenderer::doWallpaper: failed to load wallpaper "/usr/share/backgrounds/waves/2-sulphuric-waves-day.1600.png"
I see that "sulfur-on-waves.png" is in /usr/share/backgrounds/waves/. Maybe "2-sulphuric-waves-day.1600.png" was renamed to "sulfur-on-waves.png"?
I don't really know if this depends on desktop-backgrounds-basic-9.0.0-1 [provides images in /usr/share/backgrounds] or on kdebase-workspace-4.1.0-8.fc9 [provides /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/oxygen] or on kde-settings-kdm-4.0-25.fc9 [provides /etc/kde/kdm/backgroundrc that points to a file that is missing]
Additional info: I have installed F9 using Fedora 9 KDE-Live.
It was one of the prerelease background pictures, it has been replaced by pictures without the sulfur crystal in F9 final. Normally (i.e. with the default settings from kde-settings) you don't notice the bug at all because KDM is set up to use a theme (FedoraWaves) and the background picture is not shown when a theme is in use. That setting is leftover from when we didn't have a FedoraWaves theme yet and so had set up unthemed KDM with Waves imagery as a temporary solution (that's also why it uses the old images).
Sounds like this is not a bug, but a result of a hack during F9 development. Anything that needs to be addressed or can it be closed?
We should probably either remove the offending setting or set it to one of the current FedoraWaves images.
Are we going to address this for F9 or just fix for Rawhide? Any updates?
I am running Fedora 10 and as far as I can see this issue is gone. This should perhaps be marked as closed
No, this is an F9-only issue. The setting is correct in F10.
I have reported this issue. I have upgraded to F10. If this is an F9-only issue then I am afraid I can't report any progress with F9
We know what the issue is, we just didn't submit an update just for this because it's easily worked around. But we have to update kde-settings anyway for KDE 4.2, so we'll be rolling the fix into the KDE 4.2.0 update set.
fix will be included in kde42 update.
