    Default KDE4 change password via gui


    Hello, I'm using latest opensuse 11.1 with KDE4.1. The problem is, I
    cannot find a place to change my user password via GUI. I know I can use
    terminal->passwd command or use YAST as root but I want to be able to
    change my password as a simple user (kde3 and gnome both let me do
    that). Have they disabled this feature in KDE4. Thank you!

    I don't know is where it on KDE4 (is it exists?), but you can do this
    via YaST -> Security and Users -> User and Group Management -> select
    your user and hit the Edit button.

    Ok, a small workaround, in menu search, typing password... then KDE3-s
    User/password settings link appears in the listing, via that it's
    possible to edit userinfo. But I still think, the password and other
    options should be under "About me" in KDE4

    I am afraid that that is not what OP wants because that is using root.
    As a normal user you want to change your password without even knowing
    the password of root. The CLI user has the passwd command for that (as
    the OP mentioned). As a GUI user he wants a GUI way to change the
    passwd. In KDE3 this can easily be found in the Desktop Configuration >
    Privacy and Security > Password ... His question is: where is this
    (IMHO basic functionality) in KDE4.

    kde4-kdepasswd

    Ah, my bad. Thx for the clarification.

    Thank you guys!
    Installing the additional package 'kde4-kdepasswd' resolved the issue,
    additional tab appeared under "About Me" section. I'm still wondering,
    why isn't this feature installed by default.

    Glad you found it. Think you are right. Changing your password is more
    important than most of the other bells and colours you can change.

    I will try to remember this when I go for KDE4. Thanks for sharing the
    solution with us.
