Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-16 23:28:30 EDT
Duplicate config tools should not be in the menus or the control center. i.e.
totally invisible from the GUI. It's fine if they are in /usr/bin/.

The kuser account manager is in the kdeadmin package.

KDE user tool should be deleted, please close this bug once it's gone.

realize we are just removing the link from GUI, which is indeed done with
