Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 967181
SLiM inhibited from using custom theme with SELinux enabled.
Last modified: 2015-02-17 10:20:09 EST
Description of problem:
SLiM cannot use custom themes when SELinux is enabled. I disabled SELinux and the theme I installed worked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 19 Alpha.
Install a custom theme on SLiM with SELinux enabled.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install SLiM, set as default display manager.
2. Install a custom theme.
3. Notice how nothing changes even after editing the configuration file.
The themes are not used.
My beautiful nebula based custom background.
Tested to exist on F19 i686 and x86_64.
Please provide info how "Install a custom theme". What scheme and from what package? What denial message are you get? Did you copied context of theme?
It was not an rpm package. It's a custom brew I made myself with editing.
To install, just extract and copy "nebulated" to /usr/share/slim/themes/ and then edit /etc/slim.conf and set current_theme to nebulated.
I usually don't touch SELinux, so I did not pay attention to the denial message, nor did I see one. All I noticed is that when SELinux is enabled, it fails to work properly, and when it's off, it works as expected.
restoreconf -RFvv /usr/share/slim/themes/
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
