SteamOS Default Login Password For Steam Machine

I am a new Linux user and built my own Steam Machine. The system is powered by Linux-based operating system called SteamOS. What is the default default login password for SteamOS? How can I login into SteamOS?

SteamOS Beta is the first public release of our Linux-based operating system. The base system draws from Debian 7, code named Debian Wheezy. After installing SteamOS for the first time log onto the resulting system using the Gnome session with the following details:

  1. Account: steam
  2. Password: steam

Run steam, accept the EULA. The system will do rest of the setup. Logoff the steam account. Next login with the following:

  1. Account: desktop
  2. Password: desktop

From a terminal window, run the following command:
$ ~/post_logon.sh

This will prompt for a password – enter desktop. This script will perform the post-install customizations, then reboot. When the system reboots and comes back online you should have a functioning SteamOS install.

    Or, you could open the terminal and type:

    passwd
