Can someone tell me how to make suse prompt for a login when I first boot up. It never asks for my password and boots directly into kde.
Of course as soon as I posted the question, it dawned on me to login as root and run yast. Anyway, which file holds the login prompt info?
In KDE go to Personal setting-Advanced(tab)-System-Login Manager. enter the root password and turn off auto login.
There is an equivalent in Gnome I think

do not log in as root, ever. (there is always another better, safer
way than logging into KDE/Gnome/etc as root)
log in as yourself, and then launch YaST and it will automatically ASK
for the root password and then you will operate inside YaST as root…
i know other operating systems and linux distros do it other
ways…for best results do it as above, here…
I think the OP wants to turn off the autologin feature for the default user.
Start Yast - System - Sysconfigeditor. Search for AUTOLOGIN, remove the username, Accept, done. On next boot you will be prompted for login and password.
And…take @palladium’s advice: don’t ever login as root.
