Description Kevin Kofler 2009-05-31 11:01:05 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #502618 +++

Description of problem:
It seems impossible to make kdm remember any default user icon other than the (IMHO) incredibly ugly icon in /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/pics/users/default1.png. Even if I change it in the configuration, reinstalling kdm is enough to return it to the original.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
  kdm.x86_64 0:4.2.3-4.fc11

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the KDM configuration (System Settings - Advanced - Login Manager)
2. Go to the "Users" tab
3. Select some other default icon (e.g., /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/pics/users/default_leonidas.png)
4. Save and quit -- the new icon is in place
5. "yum reinstall kdm" (or install a new version if it's available)
6. Check the configuration now -- the icon is back to default1.png again!
Actual results:
Ugly icon returns

Expected results:
The selected icon remains

And the KDE developer says that this one actually is a downstream-specific issue ...

The symlink for the default icon is created in the kdm package. So it's normal that this is reset each time the package is reinstalled. Upstream needs a way to configure the icon without setting symlinks in systemwide directories, there's currently no way to both have a system default and let the user override it.

The bug on our end is that we're still using default1.png instead of default_leonidas.png as we should as the default on F11.
