Description Fabio Brugnara 2013-01-29 09:30:45 UTC
Description of problem:

After the last update, it became impossible to login in a KDE session.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kde-settings 4.9.18.fc18

How reproducible:
always, to me

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait for the kdm screen to appear
2. try to login in kde session
Actual results:

KDE session is aborted immediately, and you are brought back to login screen

Expected results:

KDE session starts

Additional info:

After some struggling, I found a script


that is invoked during kde startup, and, according to rpm, belongs to the above mentioned package.
It contains "exit" commands that cause the whole startkde script to stop.
Everything went OK by substituting the "exit" commands in that script with "return" statements.

thank you for the good work on fedora and KDE

Fabio Brugnara

I see someone else (dvratil) stepped up to take care of it... the new kde-settings builds referenced above should fix things.

And thanks for the excellent detective-work and diagnosis.
