I am the sole user of my computer so I use my root user name for everything. I am tired of logging in all the time and entering a keyring so I was hoping that creating an automatic login would resolve that. It didn't, so now I have a broken password and I cannot install any programs and I cannot fix my password. Does anybody have any help for this? Thank you.

however, I'm afraid you may've stuffed the permissions up when opening your files as root... you may need to change ownership of your home dir:
