Description Steve Muir 1999-05-17 15:48:46 UTC
Two problems

1) sets KDEDIR incorrectly to /usr.  Running kdesetup with
KDEDIR as set by the script produces errors, but unsetting
KDEDIR or setting it to "/" fixes them.

2) prepends $(KDEDIR)/bin to PATH even though it is already
a component of PATH. should be fixed to find the correct value of KDEDIR,
then only add $(KDEDIR)/bin to PATH if not already a
component (use 'type -path').

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-06-11 16:09:59 UTC
It is proper for KDEDIR to be set to /usr.  Why do you think

However, you are right that /usr/bin should _not_ be appended to the
beginning of the path.  This will be fixed in an errata.
