Bug#481584: [ksmserver] KDE update 3.5.5 -> 3.5.9 ksmserver not updated, blank screen when starting X
--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
First: I don't use any display manager, I start X with the startx command.
The problem occured when I installed Gwenview, KPhotoAlbum and digiKam. At
this point I was running a KDE 3.5.5 setup and I used
apt-get install gwenview kphotoalbum digikam
This caused several other KDE packages to be updated to 3.5.9, among them
kdebase-bin, kdelibs4c2a, kdesktop etc.
Next time I started X with startx I got a black screen with a mouse pointer,
nothing else. Clicking and keystrokes didn't cause any reaction.
I first updated kwin from 3.5.5 to 3.5.9 wich didn't have any effect. After
updating ksmserver from 3.5.5 to 3.5.9 the KDE session starts again and
everything runs as normal.
I think that there is a dependency missing between ksmserver and some of the
basic KDE packages so that if those are update ksmserver gets updated too.
