My Fedora 22 (workstation-gnome) home pc has two accounts: steve, which has no password, and root which does have a password. On this website, the
fedora 22 - change from gnome to kde4
topic may have reached an impasse. It seems that the Gnome to KDE desktop is user specific; its manipulation apparently requires that the user ID have a password, at least temporarily.
I believe that I can resolve this by:
logging in as root
setting a password for the steve account
logging in as steve, with the password, simultaenously changing the steve account to kde
logging back in as root and eliminating the password from the steve account.
How do I do #'s 2 and 4 above? After #4, I will want the steve account to have no password.
