My partner left today and will be away for a month; he put a barrier on the system to prevent my children from logging on, and gave me instructions on how to lift it if I wanted to allow them to log on. Basically, I have root access; unfortunately, I can't log in myself, it gives me the message that he put on for the kids. So - I can use root, but I can't reach my own desktop, although I can reach my own home directory. I want to be able to access my own KMail, as my partner has set it up so that we can send encrypted messages to each other - can someone tell me either how to do this from Root, or how to get my own desktop. PS: he told me if I had any questions to come to this site, and someone would help me!
