Description Oldrich Jedlicka 2008-10-24 18:14:42 UTC
I faced the same problem as described in bug #153533 - but with kde-3.5.10. I also see no list of faces (when I click on the face icon) in Control center (in both Login manager's admin mode and in Password & User Account).

When I delete kdeglobals file, everything works as expected (I see list of faces when I click on the big face icon). But this is not a long-term solution.

Reproducible: Always

Do you need any additional info?
Comment 2 Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-18 16:49:50 UTC
Could you check if editing the kdeglobals file to not contain the dir_data line fixes the problem?
Comment 3 Oldrich Jedlicka 2008-11-18 19:40:04 UTC
When I comment-out (using '#') only this line, it works. I see the same effect as deleting the whole file.

This must be fixed with kdelibs-3.5.10-r6 (in overlay for testing reasons, will hit tree really soon), reopen if not. thanks
