Description Andreas Tunek 2015-10-12 18:17:13 UTC
In the settings you can make a user an "Administrator", but there is no way to revert the user back to a normal user again.

This might be filed to the wrong component, but I do not know which component it sould be filed under.

No problem - the component for "Settings" is "control-center".

Comment 2 Ondrej Holy 2015-10-16 12:50:15 UTC
It is intentional to not allow demotion of the last administrator account. However this might be allowed if there is configured root account...

Comment 3 Andreas Tunek 2015-10-17 13:27:36 UTC
I would argue that if you make an unreversible change you should somehow inform the user that you can't revert the setting. This leads to a lot of problems, the system asks for a specific users password instead of the root password when you want to install programs for example.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 18:11:54 UTC
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
