Guys, There were 2 files installed owned by root:root in user ~/.kde3/share/config: -rw------- 1 root root 221 Mar 5 09:34 kcmshellrc -rw------- 1 root root 147 Mar 5 09:34 kfontinstuirc The remaining files were all owned by the normal user. Does this need to be fixed in svn? I can't think of any reason packaging would have caused this issue. Also, kcontrol does not launch from the "kmenu -> Settings -> Control Center" entry any more. Launching from the command line with 'kcontrol' works fine. This is on x86_64. I haven't tried on i686 yet. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
