Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

Please revert the patch which adds polkit-kde-manager to the dimscreen for administration mode effect. This patch breaks the dropdown list. It is a known upstream bug and has been fixed for 4.3, but can't be backported to 4.2 (see http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=183046)

The patch added the following line to kdebase/workspace/kwin/effects/dimscreen.cpp:

check << "polkit-kde-manager polkit-kde-manager";

This has to be reverted or the dimscreen effect for 4.3 has to be used (which is I think out of bounds due to freeze).

  [ Harald Sitter ]
  * Add kubuntu_13_startkde_set_country.diff to set KDE's country setting
    (based upon the locale value, so 'de_AT' would be 'at' as country) at
    login. If no LANG is set, or parsing results in an empty string, nothing
    will be done. (LP: #224461)
  * Don't remove gtk-qt-engine cruft and .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 not only when
    qtcurve and kds are installed but also when gtk-qt-engine itself is
    installed. Otherwise the latter will be unapplied post-login (LP: #352946)

  [ Jonathan Thomas ]
  * Add kubuntu_75_fix_shellrunner_crash.diff, fixes KDE bug 186036, and can
    be removed in KDE 4.2.3 (LP: #340607)
  * Add kubuntu_76_disable_dim_for_polkit.diff, the dim plugin breaks the
    policykit-kde dialog (LP: #350225)
  * Add kubuntu_77_fix_autohide_glowbar_flicker.diff, unappliable in KDE 4.2.3
  * Add kubuntu_78_kubuntu_78_krunner_history_combobox_palette.diff to fix an
    invisible scrollbar background in the combobox, unappliable in KDE 4.2.3
  * Add kubuntu_79_fix_small_screensavers.diff to fix small OpenGL
    screensavers, can be unapplied in KDE 4.2.3 (LP: #211422)
