Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 989388
Password is asked twice when using KDE with GDM after user switching
Last modified: 2015-02-17 11:24:22 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into a plasma-workspace session using GDM
2. Switch users
3. Switch back to KDE user
Password is asked and accepted by GDM
Password is asked and accepted by KDE lock screen
Password only asked once (preferably by actual display-manager, in this case GDM)
I filed this bug under GDM, might also be a problem of a KDE component. Please change it, if the culprit is not GDM
I see this on occasion on F18 and Gnome, so doesn't appear to be isolated to KDE.
Looks like this was reported during F19 test days.
Also happens when using the Mate desktop.
Still there with F21
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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
