The KDE 4.3 System Settings - Part 2 - Personal + Network & Connectivity

(Other stories by Steve Lake)

"The About Me section is a master section designed with your personal information and settings in mind. These range from passwords and accessibility, to region settings and language.

"Password & User Account

"The Password & User Account section tells the computer several minor, but important things about you and your preferences for your user account. This section is broken into three key areas: Avatar and Password, User Information and Password Prompt. The Avatar and Password area gives you the ability to add a user avatar (assuming your login template supports avatars), or change an existing one, as well as change your user password for the next time you log in. The ability to change your password is very easy and will take you less than a minute to complete should you want to.

"The User Information area gives you five pieces of information, three of which you can directly change. The first is Name. You can *technically* change this. But unless you have some programs that draw information from this (which tend to be few and far between), it's best to not change this line. It's also one of the reasons it's inactive, since the developers also recommend leaving this alone apparently, which is a good thing IMHO."
