Default login as root on KDE
Hi guys!
I'm not quite sure if there's a topic like loging as root on KDE and I want to know how to do this. I know, that I must lower ID in management center but what next? I want to be able to login as root when I start KDE session.

sorry, this' a noob question ops: :P

TIA, disruptive_nature.

Send a message via ICQ to pepecito
Default KDE root login
To enable login as root in KDE open /usr/local/share/config/kdm/kdmrc and change the line
AllowRootLogin=false
to
AllowRootLogin=true

This has been asked a couple of times... :wink:

it's his computer... Sometimes the best way to learn is to break things. I'd never have learned how to keep windows working flawlessly for months if i hadn't killed it a few times LOL

Yeah that's true, I just don't like the idea of people running as root, that leaves them susceptible to Firefox explots....

Erm... ops: I had to reinstall pc-bsd xD

I changed the line in the file that you told me, loged in as root, installed some pbi's and then I wanted to log in as user but I couldn't. It redirected me to login prompt all the time.

I'm sure that I didn't damage kdmrc file, because I only changed AllowRootLogin=false to true. Do you know what might have happened?

from my experience, it's best to launch KDE for Root like this.

Hit CTRL+ALT+F3 for example (F1-F8) and type this:

xinit /usr/bin/startkde -- :1
