I would like to be able to enter codes. I have pressed ctrl alt f5, 6 etc and get to the black screen which asks for username and password. I enter the username and password that I use to log in, but I keep getting the message telling me that they are not correct.
I tried installing lubuntu 'over' ubuntu, but am now locked out. Basically, the login screen loads, I've tried entering my username and password, but it doesn't work. I'm not really sure of my username as Ubuntu would automatically fill it in for me. But lubuntu isn't auto-loading my username, so I've been trying to enter all types of variations. I am 100% of my password though
I tried getting help at lubuntu's chat, but that's been kind of hard since there aren't that many people responding. The lubuntu people had me go into recovery mode (2.6.38-8 recovery) and so that would go smoothly. But when the screen of the options of resume, clean, dpkg, failsafex, etc, I cannot move the selector down. So basically, the orange selector is stuck at resume. Whenever I press the down key, the computer runs some lines, and I cannot go back to the list of options. The list is still visible, but can't select any of the options.
If I press the 'end' button, that executes something (probably the last option in the list), and I shut down the pc when it did that. The other arrow keys do nothing. The tab button manages to move the selector from the list to 'Ok' and 'Cancel.' But I cannot move the selector down.. TL;DR: I need to either get into recovery mode, or find a way to get my exact username lubuntu thinks it is.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04LTS. I'm trying to configure my chat accounts. But after entering username and password, it is asking "Enter password to unlock your login keyring". I have entered my login password. But it is saying that "The password you use to log in to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring."

I'm trying to use Kubuntu 10.04 in a corporate environment. Our environment uses an internet proxy that requires a username and password.Under Ubuntu 10.04, I can use the GUI to set the proxy host, port, username and password. When I do this, all the web browsers work, Snyaptic works, etc.However, under Kubuntu 10.04, the GUI lets me specify a proxy host and port, but doesn't appear to save the username and password. Because of this, I have to manually set the proxy information on my web browser, but the package managers don't work because they can't access the internet. Apparently the ability to specify proxy username and password is either broken or unfinished.
I've been using ubuntu 9.10 for years and never been asked for username and password, always started straight away. Today I started the computer, it's asking for them and doesn't accept the password so it's trapped in a loop. I changed the password, no luck, the username when starting seems to be different from the one when I'm changing it. Something like "Mart Di", versus "mart". Tried both with new and old passwords. Does the password expireor something?

And the password is now echoed to the screen in cleartext. as I type it
Haven't changed any settings (although I have been keeping up with the updates).
I've searched the forums, and the occasional new user will complain nothing shows up in the PW field which is the expected behavior. Unfortunately, I have the opposite behavior -- something shows up, and I don't want it.

However, when loading the web page [URL]... a box appears asking for a username and password. I have tried many combination's including the root with no success. What value does it want, or what setting is wrong. In studying the file httpd.conf in somehow loads the file phpMyAdmin.conf

brand new 2 Ubantu & set up standard Ubantu compartment accessed via 1 user name only and password. 1st few times all good but now suddenly, unexpectedly password declared invalid. Had written down password so it is correct & not entry error. Not know how to reset password or bypass 'username/password log on screen' Am on an Acer 5542G with windows 7 home premium.
Whenever I am prompted to enter the root password, typical example would be in 'Power Management' clicking the button 'Make Default', pressing ENTER or clicking AUTHENTICATE doesn't close the box. To get passed this I have to press ALT+F4 and it continues which I'm assuming still does authenticate.
When I use rar e to extract a rar file, the request for entry of the password always says password will not be echoed. For longer passwords, this is difficult, since a single mistyped key will result in an error.
Does anyone know how I can use the rar command to extract and have the password echoed (appear on the screen as I type it)?
Something has gone awry with my login. After the usual username/password prompt my laptop comes up with smart card authentication & I can't login. How do I get away from the graphical login so I can login & correct the problem?
I'm a newbie running Ubuntu 9.10. I have two users (wife and me), and each user's screensaver is set to lock so that on wakeup, we get to choose which user's desktop to go to. However, Ubuntu requires a password, so this is pretty tedious.I'd like to switch users without entering any password. I know about this trick that works for the boot login, but it doesn't deal with multiple users.Is it possible to set empty passwords for users in Ubuntu, or skip the password in other ways?(I'm expecting real Linux users to suggest that passwordless users must not get any rights and there be an admin user with a strong password.
Any idea how to log a user in without a password in GDM? I've found this archived thread but it doesn't appear to do anything when I tried what it says: [URL] I'm not looking for auto-login. I'd simply like one user to be able to click on his name and it will log in without prompting for a password.
