Description Damien Miller 2001-10-24 19:50:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
The /usr/bin/licq script always executes the KDE frontend, even if run
under GNOME

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run licq from the GNOME menu

Actual Results:  The KDE frontend is started

Expected Results:  The GNOME frontend should have been started

Additional info:

I think the problem is that the /usr/bin/licq script tries to detect the
environment used by grepping the output of ps. Unfortunately the grep is
not specific enough and ends up matching itself: e.g:

ps auxwww | grep kdeinit

will always return:

djm       3266  0.0  0.2  1728  592 pts/3    S    09:46   0:00 grep kdeinit

And test as true in the if statement. Since KDE is tested for first, licq
will always use the KDE frontend.

Solution: make the grep more specific - e.g. "grep kde\\init"
