Okay, thanks. I'm still too much of newbie with C++ to fully understand the syntax and the full bread crumb trail, but I get the gist of what is happening.

Yes, I see that changing kdm to tdm would resolve the bug report in a clean manner.


If you have no objections to renaming Trinity kdm to tdm, would you provide me a punch list of sorts for how you proceeded to rename kdesu to tdesu?

If you object to renaming kdm to tdm, then to resolve the bug report I think we could resolve with something like this (I'm still learning syntax --- need help! :) ):

// Avoid naming collisions with KDE4.
char *logname;
logname = prog;
strcat ( logname, "-tde" );
sprintf( buf, "/var/log/%s.log", logname )
