Description Stefan Huszics 2007-04-12 08:03:48 UTC
Not having useflag kde when installing app-cdr/k3b has the unexpected effect of not installing k3bSetup. This is quite confusing for an end user, especially since the k3bSetp tool is heavily advertised in k3b and it is nowhere to be found for no apparent reason.

Suggests adding/changing the useflag to k3bsetup to give users a clue about what the effect really is.

If the above is not considered reasonable, at least an elog message should be added that explains the situation.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
Confused users because of an inappropriately named useflag/useflag-function

Expected Results:  
A clear & understandable k3bsetup useflag

I've added an elog message. It's pointless to add yet another use flag for every minor crap. Add yourself to the cdrom group and you're done. No need for k3bsetup.

OK, sounds like a reasonable solution that solves the main problem of the user not knowing what is going on. Thanks :)
