Description of problem:
At the beginning of startkde we have :
[ -d "$HOME"/.kde/share/config ] || mkdir -p "$HOME"/.kde/share/config
so the following test :
if [ ! -d "$HOME"/.kde -a -d /etc/skel/.kde ]; then
( cd /etc/skel && tar cpf - .kde ) | ( cd "$HOME" && tar xpf - )
is always false and /etc/skel/.kde is never copied in the user HOME...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: /etc/skel/.kde is not copied in $HOME/.kde
Expected Results: /etc/skel/.kde is copied in $HOME/.kde
This bug has been present since RedHat 7.3 (see bug reports #52502 & #67583)
It could be fixed very simply by moving the "test || mkdir" line to come
after the "tar /etc/.skel" block.
It was reported to me that this had been done almost two years ago,
so it's somewhat disappointing that this bug is still present.
This bug is fixed in the current FC release.
