This change has been marked as submitted.

Review request for kde-workspace, KDE Graphics, Plasma, and Marcel Wiesweg.

Bugs: 218668

Repository: kgamma


KGamma's saved user settings are not applied on startup/login. The user has to enter the KCM to apply them.
This makes it rather useless, as not even saving the settings system-wide really works any more. (this requires an xorg.conf which normally doesn't exist nowadays)

This patch uses kcminit to apply these settings again on login. Apparently this has been forgotten when moving/porting kgamma to KDE4.

PS: As there seems to be no kgamma group and this is desktop-related, I decided to add the kde-workspace and plasma groups for review. I hope that's ok... ;)


  kcmkgamma/kgamma.cpp 890ba99 
  kcmkgamma/kgamma.desktop 3d87513 



Set a gamma value in the KGamma KCM, logout/login (or reboot), Gamma value 
gets set correctly.

If there's no kgammarc file (or it contains no actual gamma settings), the Gamma value is not changed. It stays at what is configured for X (or its default).
