Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: kdm
kdm version: ii kdm 3.5.2-0ubuntu27
X display manager for KDE
Try this: set your user shell to be zsh.
Changing the login shell for user
Enter the new value, or press ENTER for the default
Login Shell [/bin/bash]: /bin/zsh
Now restart X:
Try to log in. It won't work. It will get back to the KDM login screen.
startx still works ok and brings the KDE session up (with "exec startkde" in ~/.xinitrc).
If you change you shell back to bash, it will start working again.
I do not know where to look for diagnostics on what went wrong when kdm
was starting my sessions. There's nothing on the log files under
/var/log or my home directory.
** Affects: kdebase (Ubuntu)
