Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/kde4-config from 'write' accesses on the directory /home/toxn/.kde/share/config.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If vous pensez que kde4-config devrait être autorisé à accéder write sur config directory par défaut.
Then vous devriez rapporter ceci en tant qu'anomalie.
Vous pouvez générer un module de stratégie local pour autoriser cet accès.
autoriser cet accès pour le moment en exécutant :
# grep kde4-config /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 10:48:02 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '18'.

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 prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be 
able to fix it before Fedora 18 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 to Fedora 18's end of life.

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.
Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2014-01-05 01:08:19 EST
selinux-policy-3.11.1-108.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
