Description Mary Ellen Foster 2005-04-15 09:06:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: On some of the KDE Control Centre modules, there's an "Administrator mode" button that lets you type in the root password and do some system-level configuration. In the latest Fedora KDE, it doesn't seem to work: I click the button, type the root password into the resulting dialogue box, wait a couple of seconds, and then it shows the initial KControl screen instead of the administrator-mode version of the module I was working in. This happens at least with the "Login Manager" and "Font Installer" modules. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kdebase-3.4.0-5 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start KDE Control Centre 2. Choose "System Administration" - "Login Manager" 3. Press "Administrator mode" 4. Type root password into dialogue box Actual Results: It showed the "Welcome to the KDE Control Centre" screen again Expected Results: It should have shown me the "Login Manager" module in administrator mode Additional info:

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2005-04-25 16:42:51 UTC
it's strange, i'm not able to reproduce it. Could you please try with a new user?
Comment 4 Mary Ellen Foster 2005-04-26 09:41:59 UTC
Yes, with a new user, it worked fine on the "login manager" tab. Popped up an error message about "Unable to create /usr/share/apps/kdm/faces" (or something very similar, I'm not in front of that computer now) but it worked. Weird. Sorry for the false alarm.

don't know if this helps, but kcontrol was working fine for me (including the administrator mode buttons).........until one time I did a "sudo kcontrol" from the command line. After that, everytime i used kcontrol as a regular user the administrator buttons did not work, it would just kick me back to the blue colored screen with the links.
