Description of problem:
Please check the upstream bug for reproducers and more comments: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=314185
The qt-at-spi .so module does get ignored by the default kdeinit4 instance as run in 'starkde'. That is due to yet uknown issue with pre-linking the binaries there. That is, by default now, no applications run inside the KDE session using the kdeinit4 are a11y-accessible through the at-spi bus.
This can be worked around either by removing the LD_BIND_NOW=true from the kdeinit4 startup line in the startkde script:
LD_BIND_NOW=true /usr/libexec/kde4/start_kdeinit_wrapper +kcminit_startup -> /usr/libexec/kde4/start_kdeinit_wrapper +kcminit_startup
prelinking the libqspiaccessiblebridge.so with prelink prior the KDE startup:
$ prelink /usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/accessiblebridge/libqspiaccessiblebridge.so
Since the prelink is a no-option to add into qt-at-spi packaging, Kevin suggested we get rid of the LD_BIND_NOW in downstream startkde. But we should still get to the core of this.
Per my #fedora-kde comment recently...
So, kinda forgot about this... for awhile
I'm thinking of implementing Kevin's suggestion of dropping LD_BIND_NOW from startkde. I suspect that may also cure our other intermittent problems wrt prelink too.
any comments, objections, cheers of support? :)
