RHEL6 kdm theme on RHEL 6 beta
Description of problem:
My laptop has a built in 1680x1050 LCD. At times it is also connected
to an external 1280x1024 LCD. When it is connected to the external
LCD, the RHEL6 kdm theme is not attractive.
Nothing is displayed on the external display. The theme is displayed on
the built-in LCD, but the area used appears to be limited to the resolution
of the external display. (Picture attached.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 6 beta on appropriate hardware.
2. Attach external display.
3. Set DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE in /etc/sysconfig/desktop
See attached picture.
Background should be displayed on external display. Theme should use
full resolution of built-in display.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
CC'ing jreznik as he's the author of the kdm theme; Jaroslav, is this possible in kdm?
This is not a KDM issue - it supports background on second (external) monitor (and it works for me correctly on NVidia card with Nouveau drivers). The problem is in graphics subsystem - dual head misconfiguration or graphics driver dual head support problem.
What's your graphics card? Which drivers do you use? Could you attach your XOrg logs/dmesg log?

RHEL6 kdm theme on Fedora 13
Hardware is a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 with Intel graphics. I have both RHEL 6 beta and Fedora 13 installed on this system, and I have "branded" the Fedora 13 install with the redhat-logos package from RHEL 6 beta. This allows me to run KDM with the RHEL 6 theme under both RHEL 6 beta and Fedora 13 on this hardware.
As you can see from the uploaded picture, the theme works just fine on Fedora 13. I have attached dmesg output and X.org logs from both Fedora 13 (works) and RHEL 6 beta (doesn't work).

I've found the problem - seems like Qt 4.6 sometimes does not repaint background properly. Events triggers repaint.
Fixed in kdebase-workspace-4.3.4-19.el6.
could you please verify on your HW set that this issue is fixed?
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.

I no longer have a T61 to test. It seems to work OK on a T60.
Thank you Ian.
