Question Kde & Xde


The Mandriva flavor of Linux in my machine supports 2 desktops - KDE & XDE. Unlike XDE, why doesn't KDE allow to login as the root user? Is there anyway by which I can login as the root user using the KDE desktop?

Also the files & directories residing in the KDE desktop aren't available to the XDE desktop & vice-versa. Is there anyway by which the files & directories residing in either of the two desktops can be made available to the other desktop?

Thanks,

Ron

in order to make KDM allow root login is you first need to find kdmconfig (probably in /usr/share/config/kdm) then find the line:

# Allow root logins?
# Default is false
AllowRootLogin=false

change to:

# Allow root logins?
# Default is false
AllowRootLogin=true

as far as XDE & KDE sharing i am not much help, probably a permissions thing just relax the permissions to allow entering on directories and allow reading for other users on the files, (be carefull doing this)....
