Hi RockDoctor, thanks for the reply.
With regard to default KDE session setting: there is no file
on my system. Searching the web about default session setup I found few
posts with different ways this had been achieved with dates of the posts
going few years back so it seems to me this setup didn't remain consistent
over the years.
Then, in the middle of my reply it occured to me to seach for:
"FEDORA boot process", one of the results led me to:
where I've read:
In runlevel 5, Upstart runs a script called /etc/X11/prefdm. The prefdm script executes the preferred X display manager — gdm, kdm, or xdm, depending on the contents of the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file.
Looking into the contents of /etc/X11/prefdm of my RedHat workstation at work
(where I'm now and assuming it's similar to what I have at home on my FC17 workstation)
I saw that without the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file the system will start the "gdm"
by default. After searching for examples of contents for the "/etc/sysconfig/desktop"
I'm assuming it should be:
When I'll get back home (and will have spare time to get to my PC)
I'll try creating this file with the above contents and see if it'll solve
BTW, why there are tso separate entities "desktop" and "display manager"?
What happens if they're different, like:
? Not that I want to do this, just as a matter of curiocity.
Regarding the Firefox losing ability to run flash clips: I'm quite sure
one of my attemps was downloading the RPM from Adobe site and installing it
but it didn't help. On this issue too, searching the web brings many
totally different tips separated by many years and Fedora versions
making it difficult to understand, which is relevant to me and which
OK, after some more searching and reading at:
of the process I did at home which didn't work I scrolled to the bottom and saw a reply:
HappyDay / May 2, 2012
sudo mv /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /home/yourusername/.mozilla/plugins
After trying everything this worked like a charm Thanx! ;)
which seems to point to what I forgot. I'll try at home to move this
file and see if it solves the problem.
Any ideas welcomed,
