kde login fails after last update
Last modified: 2013-02-05 12:04:51 EST
Description of problem:
After the last update, it became impossible to login in a KDE session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always, to me
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait for the kdm screen to appear
2. try to login in kde session
KDE session is aborted immediately, and you are brought back to login screen
KDE session starts
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
