Review request for kdelibs, Aurélien Gâteau and David Faure.


Since commit b064749a754ec358170ecb7f19828e4216f6e965, KDE palette and font settings are only used when running KDE apps in a full KDE session. This makes KGlobalSettingsTest fail if the test is not run in a full KDE session, see

This commit changes KGlobalSettings' unit test to reflect that change. My first idea was to change the unit test such that it verifies the expected behaviour for both situations, i.e., apps run in a full KDE session and apps run in some other kind of session, but I could not figure out a way to do this without changing the KDE_FULL_SESSION environment variable before the unit test executable is run.

In the case that the signal is not expected, I reduced the kWaitForSignal timeout to prevent wasting too much time each time the test is run.


  kdeui/tests/kglobalsettingstest.h 69ed5bf 
  kdeui/tests/kglobalsettingstest.cpp 464825d 



The test passes here (run by my kde-devel user in a Konsole inside the regular user's KDE 4.6 session).
