change your password via command line like this:

$ passwd
Changing password for "current username"
(current) UNIX password: "enter current password here"
Enter new UNIX password: "enter new password"
Retype new UNIX password: "reenter new password"
passwd: password updated successfully

and here is how to change keyboard layout:

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

might take you a few minutes to hunt for where those keys are...but that should launch the gui
