Description xiando 2009-01-13 19:53:46 UTC
KDE maintainer gang story is that "startkde takes care of setting KDEDIRS" and that /etc/env.d doesn't need to set it. This story, however, breaks KDE 4.2 (4.1.96) applications on ALL OTHER DESKTOPS as they do not run, and should not run, the startkde script.

Interesting backtraces after upgrading KDE-versions using kde-testing overlay before re-adding KDEDIRS to 43kdepaths-4.2 (I just put it in 40kdepaths-for-now, so I personally don't care that much anymore) include:

pplication: Konqueror (konqueror), signal SIGABRT
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/".

Reproducible: Always

6. Get the same problem again
7. Get annoyed
8. Stick KDEDIRS in some other /etc/env.d file
9. File bug
Actual Results:  
Crashes etc.

Expected Results:  
stuff works.

Thank you for reading all of this, your contributions (if any) to GNU/Gentoo and your consideration regarding KDEDIRS.
