kickoff>computer>systemsettings under region you can set it to 12 hour AM/PM and in the date time settings you can change the time. Root login with a GUI is disabled

you should never login to root desktop, you can make all adjustments via user using the su or sudo commands.

In a Konsole/Terminal window, enter the command:
Code: Select all
kdesu systemsettings

to access the greyed-out system-wide settings in KDE System Systems GUI. Enter root user's password when prompted.
