• Setting a simple password?


    I’m trying to set a simple password for one of my users and Antergos is forcing password restrictions that won’t let me change it. I am using Gnome. I can change the user password with root in the terminal, but I’ve read that this breaks home directory encryption. Is there a config file somewhere that sets these restrictions? I read it’s /etc/pam.d/system-auth but no such file seems to exist.

    Any ideas?

  • I am not sure but the only problem is that you have different passwords then for login user and to unlock crypted devices…

    Did you try to change password with sudo passwd desired_user?
