Description Jason Frothingham 2007-04-29 22:27:00 UTC
Description of problem: Install to Hard Drive missing from KDE version of Fedora
7 Test #4

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 7 Test #4
Live CD- KDE

How reproducible: Every single .iso version I've downloaded through the mirrors.

Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Download .iso for Test #4 Live CD
2. Burn .iso
3. Leave in drive and reboot
4. try to figure out where the installer is on reboot.
5: Realize the install to hard drive is missing and anaconda won't run.
Actual results: No installation of KDE Live CD.

Expected results: Was hoping to install from KDE Live CD. Can't stand gnome.

Additional info: I apologize if this bug report comes off as a bit... jerkish.
I'm just trying to figure out how the install feature could have been left out
of the KDE version.

This comes up fine here -- are you logging in as the fedora user for the live CD?

Comment 2 Luc 2007-04-30 19:36:24 UTC
Have the same problem if I choose a language in the login screen: No shortcut to
the install program.
OK if I log directly without choosing any language: In that case I find the
Install shortcut onto my desktop

Comment 3 Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-01 10:20:49 UTC
The file /home/fedora/Desktop/liveinst.desktop should be placed there during the
login. If you login as root it would be hidden (KDE seems to don't like
"NoDisplay=true" in liveinst.desktop. This is replaced by "NoDisplay=false" for
User "fedora"). 
/home/fedora/Desktop/liveinst.desktop should be definetily there. You should at
least see it in a terminal with "ls /home/fedora/Desktop"

Comment 4 Luc 2007-05-01 14:55:39 UTC
I made a new test.
I choosed the French language in the login screen. Then I put that language as 
default  in the popup window asking if the language is just for that session 
or by default.
After  login I confirm that the Icon is not displayed on the desktop.
The file liveinst.desktop exists but is in the folder /home/fedora/Bureau/ 
(and not /home/fedora/Desktop/)
You will notice that 'Bureau' is the French translation of 'Desktop'.
Surprisingly, If I move the file liveinst.desktop in the right folder 
(/home/fedora/Desktop/), I still don't see the icon on the desktop.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2007-05-01 15:02:47 UTC
Ah, only English works atm, we need to integrate xdg-user-dirs.

This is a kde-specific issue then (not really livecd)... I'll re-assign this in
a bit, when I figure out where best to put it. 

Comment 6 Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-09 21:06:42 UTC
For the final we will use kdm with autologin. So this problem would not occur.
Also I replaced "NoDisplay=true" with "NoDisplay=False" in
/usr/share/applications/liveinst.desktop directly. So if someone boot with
"live_locale=<locale>" there would be at least a icon in the menu.

Comment 7 Rahul Sundaram 2007-05-13 18:35:24 UTC
Sebastian, has all the changes required to fix this problem already been
committed and tested? What's the status?

I've committed the changes described in comment #6 before I wrote that comment.

But the main problem here is that the integration of xdg-user-dirs needs some
love (see comment #5). So maybe I should re-assign this to Rex and/or Than?

Comment 9 Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-14 11:27:27 UTC
Oh. Just to make this clear: My changes are for livecd-fedora-kde.ks (for the
livecd), not for kdebase or xdg-user-dirs.

Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2007-05-14 11:57:26 UTC
Reassigning to kde-settings, removing FC7Blocker (since we don't non-English 
atm anyway)

- kdeglobals: xdg-user-dirs integration: Desktop, Documents (#238371)

Basic/initial integration, inserting into kdeglobals:
Desktop[$e]=$(xdg-user-dir DESKTOP)
Documents[$e]=$(xdg-user-dir DOCUMENTS)

So that the output of the following now match:
kde-config --userpath desktop  =  xdg-user-dir DESKTOP
kde-config --userpath document =  xdg-user-dir DOCUMENTS

Now, we can do likewise for multimedia app configs wrt to XDG_MUSIC_DIR,

Followup additions:

- kdeglobals: [Paths] Trash[$e]=$(xdg-user-dir DESKTOP)/Trash/
- Requires: xdg-user-dirs
