Description Samuel Mannehed cendio 2022-05-31 10:41:59 CEST
After installing the group "KDE Plasma Workspaces" on Fedora 36 it doesn't show up in our profile chooser.

Locally from GDM I get to choose between Plasma (Wayland) and Plasma (X11).

I think the cause of the problem is that they have renamed their desktop file for X11 to "plasmax11.desktop".

> gnome-classic.desktop  gnome-classic-xorg.desktop  gnome.desktop
> gnome-xorg.desktop  mate.desktop  plasmax11.desktop  xfce.desktop

> gnome-classic.desktop  gnome-classic-wayland.desktop  gnome.desktop
> gnome-wayland.desktop  plasma.desktop

> xdg_session=kde kde-plasma plasma kde4 1-kde-plasma-standard

Adding "plasmax11" to the list of xdg_session names for KDE in profiles.hconf works.

Fixed now.

Testing of missing KDE profile has been done with dev builds #2661 (prefix) and #2676 (postfix) using Fedora36 and Ubuntu22.04. Listed below are the desktop environments that appear in the profile selector for these dists. 

   [x] MATE
   [x] Xfce
   [ ] KDE
   [x] MATE
   [x] Xfce
   [x] KDE

   [x] Gnome
   [x] Xfce
   [x] KDE
   [x] Gnome
   [x] Xfce
   [x] KDE

The KDE profile does not show up on Fedora36 before the fix as predicted, contrary to Ubuntu22.04. After the fix the KDE profile appears as an option just as intended.
