Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 618323
gdm forgets user preferences
Last modified: 2011-06-29 08:57:17 EDT
Description of problem:
I *don't* want a GNOME session. If I select "user script" from the session menu, it's because that's what I want. I don't want that reset back to "GNOME session" the next time I try and log in.
Having to explicitly select the session type every time I log in is a
*terrible* user interface. It makes me want to just go back to booting
the machine to init state 3 and running startx. The consequences of
forgetting to do it are quite unpleasant (I have *lots* of files in
my home directory).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click my username
2. Select "User script"
3. Login, then log out again.
The next time I log in, it's set back to GNOME.
The next time I log in, it uses my previous choice.

Cool, but I somehow boiling SSA, Che, he does not remember the locale. In ~/.dmrc all the way through, and in /var/cache/gdm/$USER/ do not have a damn :(
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
What the fuck was that above?
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
