This issue isn’t present on my main ride, but rather on the ARM version I am trying on an old Android box.
I have tried both the Manjaro ARM (testing) KDE and XFCE versions on this box and keep running into an Authentication Password Failure in KDE.
I turn on display password to double check the password was entered correctly and even tried using 1234 as the password based on a suggestion in another post.
I read that it may be related to the keyboard, so I tried selecting several different keyboards in the OS (several generic keyboards plus several from the actual manufacturer of my keyboard) but no joy.
If you are wondering why I use the Testing version, it is because this is the only way that I can get Ethernet to work, sadly WiFi does not work.
I searched the forums and found this thread:
However it is two years old and remains unresolved.
If anyone is able to help, I will be most grateful!
Many thanks @linux-aarhus, I appreciate your help.
I tried your suggestion but unfortunately in Terminal I wasn’t able to switch to root.
For the record I typed SU and when it asked for my password, I entered it and was hit with the same Authentication Failure that I get in pamac.
