Ubuntu Installation :: Entering Username And Password But It Doesn't Work?
Jun 10, 2011
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 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'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."
Im using opennms network configuration backup server called 'RANCID'.It run on top of RHEL5 system and using APache. Here's the link which i'm accessing [URL] But any one can access this URL and obtain my configuration files
I want to secure this using a logon page.allow login Only for the successful authentications by entering the predefined username and password But after get authenticate book marking the above URL still can access anyone since it didnt prompt username and password again In eachtime executing the above url it should direct to authenticate page
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04...How do i setup a broadband connection that DOES NOT require a username and password i tried pppoeconf but it wont let me proceed without entering something in the username and password fields. on XP i jus plug in my Ethernet cable and it works but it doest on ubuntu.
Since today the keyboard doesn't work. I can input username and password but after logged in I can't work with the keyboard. It seems locked. The mouse works correctly. If I boot with Windows the keyboard works correctly.
i am having a problem with the installation with ubuntu 10.10 during the installation, i was entering my setup info (login password, timezone, etc.) when everything stopped working, it wouldnt let me continue, the forward button wouldnt work. i let it set for a good 30 minutes but it wouldnt do anything.
so unable to continue, i restarted and tried to boot from my cd drive and now it wont boot from the drive, and since i let ubuntu delete my windows partition, i cant boot from it so i basically have a blank hard drive. the cd drive will boot other cds because i booted hirens boot cd in an attempt to make sure the cd drive was functioning and ran diagnostics to make sure the drive was alright.
The download page says the CD should boot into the desktop. Instead I am getting a login screen. What is the default username and password? (I assume that after I log in I will have an option to actually install it on my hard disc ...)
Is it possible to somehow setup an ssh server that doesn't require a username,password or cert to login?I wish to provide shell access to a console program, which will prompt for a username and password.Encryption is essential though, and users must not be able to snoop in on each other
I have installed the ubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso to a USB Key/Drive using Universal USB Installer (v1.5.5). I restart my machine and boot to Ubuntu from USB. I then go to System > Administration > Update Manager and download all the updates and start to install them. I then come across this... Where do I go from here? Do I need to type anything in?
I downloaded the disk image, burned it to disk and after 3 tries managed to get the disk to load. It is asking me for a username and password. What is the username and password to log onto the install disk?
I am trying to install Ubuntu as a secondary operating system on my Windows 7 PC.
System specs as follows: AMD Athlon II X4 620 Processor 2.6 Ghz 4.00 GB RAM ATI Radeon 4600 series video card
I downloaded the 32-bit ISO image from ubuntu.com and burned it to a CD. When I try to boot, I get a purple splash screen with a couple of icons on the bottom. Shortly thereafter, I get another screen that says Ubuntu and has 5 dots on it that change color from red to white in sequence. During this time, my CD drive is active. After a very long time, the drive goes quiet and I get an error that the installer can't find the username or password. I don't remember the exact text of the error message. The system was hung and required a hard boot to recover.
Reading these forums, I rebooted the computer and this time pressed the escape key once the display had changed to the Ubuntu with the dots. The username/password error came up quickly and was followed by several "Bus error" messages. I ejected the CD and restarted the computer in order to come here for enlightenment. I'm reasonably good with Windows but a total neophyte when it comes to Linux. I'm going to try it again and this time record the exact error message (which is what I should've done initially).
I have installed phpMyAdmin on Fedora 11 using YUM, along with MySQL, PHP and Apache. The web and database servers are operating fine. 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
I'm having a hard time installing Ubuntu 10.10 (32bits). I load the CD and everything's ok throughout the installing procedure, but when the installation is over and it says it's gonna reboot it doesn't do it!
The screen resembles a terminal with a message like "the computer is going to reboot NOW!" but it could stay like that for hours. The keyboard is locked so I can't reboot by commands, and if I press CTRL+ALT+DEL it just reprints the same message. Therefore I'm forced to turn off my computer manually.
After that, the Ubuntu desktop doesn't load. The screen shows a terminal asking for my username and password to access the computer. No graphics at all.
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)?
I just downloaded Debian's live CD .iso file. I put it on a USB stick and booted from it. It loads everything then presents me a login screen. I have no idea what the login and password is I've looked all over google and people said it was user: live pass: live or something like that. I've tried a lot of different combinations with no luck. So does anyone know the real username and password for this?
Have dual boot winXP, FC6 computer. Clobbered something so FC6 does not boot. Am trying Ubuntu 9.10 CD; tried first to run from CD- but it asks for username and password, will not accept blanks nor my winxp values- keeps 'failing to authenticate'. So I did an install in new partition beyond linux fc6. It finally lets me log in, giving a small text window. How to get to desktop, and is there a way to get to my old home files in linux fc6 in native linux partition?
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.
I am new to Ubuntu and been trying to download some software not in the Software centre but when I go to terminal and I enter the command text I get prompted for my password ( it automatically has my login name) but the flashing cursor will not allow me to enter any text ,it just keeps on flashing but then it tells me I have entered incorrect password, What can be the problem ? The keys are not connecting with the terminal window it appears.

I've installed Karmic after having used Jaunty in the past and it's working great, but I have a couple of security questions...
I opened the Disc Utility (Palimpsest) under System>Administration and was amazed that it looks like it will let me delete partitions on my hard drive, and without even asking for a password. This seems like an enormous security oversight, what am I missing here? Is there a bug filed for this?
Also related, why does Ubuntu allow a user to disable startup applications without requiring a password?
I recently installed vsftpd on my server. I noticed that users on the machine can login into vsftpd with their username and password on the machine and go to their root dir "/home/username".Now, I want to give some people a vsftpd username and password so they can upload and download files and folders to their folder, but this folder has to be in the "/var/www/(username)" folder. I don't want them to be able to go to any other folder than their own folder like "/var", "/etc" or "/home" etc. Also I don't want them to be able to login on the machine as a user, through putty for example. They should only be allowed to acces their folder with vsftpd, nothing else.
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.
Is it possible to switch users in Debian without entering a password, as in Ubuntu Maverick? I already tried adding a nopasswdlogin group but it did not work, even though the "don't ask for password on login" entry in the login manager is no longer greyed out. Replacing gdm3 with gdm also did not work.
