Description Josiah Royse 2003-01-28 10:49:32 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030120

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
launch KDM.

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

kdebase-3.1-0.14, redhat-menus-0.33-1

How reproducible:

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
htmlview-style hacks.

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)
