Description John K. McIver III 2007-04-11 06:38:03 UTC
Description of problem:
User that is logged onto the KDE desktop environment is not listed
when issuing /usr/bin/who or /usr/bin/w.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Updated as of 04-10-2007.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into KDE via GDM.
2. Open terminal (Konsole).
3. Execute /usr/bin/who or execute /usr/bin/w.

Actual results:
User logged on through the graphical environment (GDM) into KDE are
not listed in the output:

[user@host cwd]# w
 14:17:30 up 1 day, 19:00,  0 users,  load average: 0.03, 0.05, 0.01
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHA
[user@host cwd]#

Expected results:
I would expect to see the user that is logged into the KDE desktop
environment listed as a logged on user as I am used to seeing on
previous releases of FC and RHEL.

Here is what the output looks like in a Gnome desktop session running
on FC 6:

[user@host cwd]$ w
 23:55:36 up 35 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.82, 0.39, 0.20
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHAT
user     pts/0    :0.0             23:54    0.00s  2.34s  0.01s w
[user@host cwd]$ 

Additional info:
This bug is similar in behavior to Bugzilla Bug 214130.
