From: Petter Reinholdtsen <>
Subject: bluedevil: Unable to save user-places.xbel on first login (race?)
Date: Mon, 09 Jan 2012 18:43:55 +0100
Package: libkdecore5
Version: 4:4.4.5-2
Severity: important
Usertags: debian-edu

When logging into KDE for the first time with Debian/Squeeze on a
machine with Bluetooth hardware, KDE show a dialog reporting an error
saving the file ~/.local/share//user-places.xbel.  It is claimed to be
caused by permissions problems.  The disk is not full and the directory
exist and the user have access to write to the directory after login.

According to <URL: >
the problem is in kdelibs and a workaround is to create ~/.local/share
before the user log into KDE.  According to
<URL: > the
underlying problem is fixed in kdelibs version 4:4.6.1 in Linux Mint.

I find the same problem reported to Ubuntu as
<URL: >, and claimed to be fixed
in kde4libs version 4:4.5.1-0ubuntu7 and again fixed in kde4libs version

I also find the same problem reported in
<URL: >.

As this problem affect Debian Edu badly, it would be great if it could
be fixed in Debian/Squeeze.  New users, especially teachers and pupils
in schools, are confused and scared by such strange message when they
first log into their user account.
Happy hacking
Petter Reinholdtsen

Marked as fixed in versions kde4libs/4:4.6.2-1. Request was from Maximiliano Curia <> to (Fri, 10 May 2013 11:30:04 GMT) Full text and rfc822 format available.
