Description of problem:

On a system without KDE installed, I tried to install Pony, a PyKDE app

# yum install pony

I shouldn't have to install a KDM theme to get a KDE image viewer.
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2009-06-04 07:52:01 EDT
I think leonidas-kde-theme should not be required by kde-settings, only by kdebase-workspace. It contains a Plasma wallpaper theme, a KSplash theme and a KDM theme. None of these are useful outside of KDE.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2009-06-04 09:22:28 EDT

or to make things a bit indirect (with slightly easier future maintainability), make a new kde-settings-workspace subpkg Required by kdebase-workspace (like -kdm).
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2009-06-04 09:25:42 EDT
kdebase-workspace currently drags in leonidas-kde-theme directly for the default face icon symlink.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2009-06-04 09:38:56 EDT
OK, plan:

short-term: drop leonidas-kde-theme dep from kde-settings

potential long term:  make kde-settings-workspace subpkg to encapsulate such theming details. (could do something like this for f12 perhaps).
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 13:04:19 EDT
