comment console-kit-daemon - can it be stopped?
I had no /etc/X11/default-display-manager file, and I figure you might as well uninstall the package if you don't need it. I prefer this solution

comment System-wide bashrc on FreeBSD
The default ~/.bashrc also has a section like this on Debian 7, although /etc/bash.bashrc is called even if that section is left out.

@NickW Thanks for pointing that out, although I did find the actual issue I didn't notice this.

comment Is there a shell to change password when connecting over SSH?
@lain I wouldn't do it if I don't have to. This is not about being dodgy, but it's going to require their current password anyway, and the other services do not all allow for PKA either way. This is all just for filesharing among users on a forum, no big deal.

@etagenklo There is a password for the user in it and it is exactly the same as the root password

comment Is there a shell to change password when connecting over SSH?
Well thought, but still not quite what I'm looking for, because I'd have to teach my users how to convert their private keys and how to use them. Still +1 for a very good answer!

@etagenklo I tried logging in to bash and ran passwd again, but this seems to be a problem with passwd and not using it as a shell, because it doesn't work for normal users from bash either. Any suggestions?

comment Is there a shell to change password when connecting over SSH?
True, I've also just thought of binding SSHD to a different IP address which I use for private stuff (So all services except FTP seem closed). I don't think I want to let them change password then, it's not essential, and I wouldn't mind managing these 40-50 users manually when that's all I have to do. After all, the users are from a hacking forum, I believe they are smart enough to remember their passwords :)
