Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Installing Kubuntu Gutsy Beta with the OEM option from thev desktop CD works fine until the last reboot. As I get the userconfig screen I get an error dialog about DCOP (screen shot attached). I don't get this problem with the Ubuntu version.

I'm testing in virtual box which may affect this, though networking generally works well there.

This will very probably apply to the similar script used for automatic-ubiquity support.

  * Add a --quiet option to oem-config-prepare to suppress its
    acknowledgement message (and thus the dialog requiring user interaction
    if $DISPLAY is set).
  * Add internationalisation (LP: #23537). Adjusted several widget names and
    strings in the KDE frontend to bring it into sync with the GTK frontend
    for this purpose.
  * Start dcopserver when running the KDE frontend (LP: #145226).
  * Add a --debug option to oem-config-firstboot to make debugging a bit
    less painful.
  * Remove use of dh_python, since it's a no-op now. Bump debhelper
    build-dependency to (a.k.a. dh_python from 5.0.38) for
  * Clean up subprocesses even if oem-config-dm is interrupted.
  * GTK frontend:
    - Go forward when activating rows in language or keyboard treeviews.
  * Make sure the selected locale at least exists (we should really install
    the language pack, but this is a stopgap measure).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: console-setup 1.16ubuntu5,
    localechooser 1.38ubuntu2, user-setup 1.14ubuntu3.

reopening due to the last comment.

Colin, this looks like a permissions error - like ~/.DCOPserver* needs to be chown'd to user.user, not root. The dialog seems to refer to both errors, but not explicitly say the second one.

Odd, it should all be running as root. The mortal oem user has actually been deleted by this point ...

  * busybox sed doesn't support making backup files when editing in place
    (e.g. 'sed -i.oem'); chroot to edit kdmrc as well.
  * Fix GTK .desktop filename used in oem-config-prepare gksudo invocation.
  * Install .desktop files under /usr/share/applications/ at first install
    rather than shipping them there in the .debs, and remove them once
    oem-config-firstboot has been run (LP: #145281).
  * Set HOME in oem-config-dm so that iceauth is happier.
  * Start dcopserver before kwin (LP: #145226).
  * Run kdesktop too to fix the background in KDE.
  * Update translations from Rosetta.
