  That is controlled by 'kcmshell display' module (it is/was tdecmshell on
TDE). You can verify that it is found (it should be if it is all blank) with
'tdecmshell --list'. The primary source for the tdecmshell display page is:


Apparently the following code is failing (old version probably similar to current:

  TDECModule *kcm = TDECModuleLoader::loadModule( name, page );

  if ( kcm )
    top->addWidget( kcm );
    m_tabs->addTab( page, label );

    connect( kcm, TQT_SIGNAL( changed(bool) ), TQT_SLOT( moduleChanged(bool) ) );
    m_modules.insert(kcm, false);
    delete page;

(so it appears 'delete page' is being called in your case)

  The actual sliders and widgets that would be created if the module was found
would be in:


  The tdelibs source isn't any more helpful on exactly which module the
'display' relies on, see


  Sorry not much more help than being able to tell you where to look in the
source. The only thing I can think of would be that something wasn't set
properly when the display.moc was generated -- but you would expect that would
be confirmable by everybody. Do you get any debug messages/warnings?

(I think it is kdWarning(780) if the module can't be found)
