Description of problem:
The Main Menu->System Settings->Login Screen field only uses the
"gnome-gdmsetup.desktop" link/file instead of "kde-kdm.desktop" when
/etc/sysconfig/desktop is equal to "KDE".
Note: you can get to the KDM configuration from under the Kcontrol panel- but
since the name "Login Screen" is nondescript, a KDE user may assume it will
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose Main Menu->System Settings->Login Screen
Actual Results: GDMsetup
Expected Results: KDM config using kde-kdm.desktop: Exec=kcmshell System/kdm
If you change the *dm, you're basically on your own.
Making the .desktop file a "symlink" causes some problems, such as
making StartupNotify=true in the .desktop file break. I don't want to propagate
If we eventually do a real framework for selecting "preferred applications"
then it would cover this, but in the meantime I don't expect to
address the issue. So closing as a standalone bug, but if we do a
preferred applications framework that spans gnome/kde we would address
it in that context (and also the email/office/web apps that are on the panel
by default, etc. would be easy to change)
