about authentication in kde system setup tool
On a recently installed kde desktop environment, I'm getting confused
about being prompted when attempting to make certain changes.
I get a prompt that is about authentication. A drop down list says
`Select user', however my user that I'm logged in as is not there, nor
is root. And yet I cannot continue without making a selection.
I don't understand what is expected of me there. Surely I would not
want to select another user to have permission to alter my desktop.
Here is a sequence:
>From main menu/system settings/ Login screen/
In the font selector use `choose' button to change font and size/
Say `OK' then press `apply', at that point an authentication dialog
Administrator authorization is
required to change the login
An application is attempting to perform an
action that requires privileges
Authentication is required to perform this
------- --------- ---=--- --------- --------
Then a dropdown list that says `select user' when I drop the list
down none of them are my user, nor root.
How is that supposed to work?
