I have a brand new install.I was doing some housekeeping and made a more sure password.Something went wonky and I got locked out.So I booted to root and changed the password.I'm back in the box now.But, my keyring password no longer matches my user password.So every time I want to do something I am asked for my old password.How do I change my keyring password to match my login password?
I tried to run Ubuntu One on my Lucid Lynx, however, when I want to start the Ubuntu One Client, I just receive a message from Login Keyring asking for a password:
The password you use to log in to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring.
I haven't change my login password for a long time. It is still the same and it works.
However, when I put my current password below the keyring's message it says it is incorrect. When I try to change the password in in Accessories > Passwords and Encryption Keys it writes that the old password (my current one) is not correct.
What happens? Which password should I type there? I do not remember I set somewhere any other password than my current login one.
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 just updated to 10.10 (), but I have one problem. I changed my password a few days ago, and now whenever I log on, It comes up with the attached message, and I have to type in my OLD password to connect to wireless.
using ubuntu 10.10.. firsly it was asking me for password when i open my computer but i disabled that option and now it doesnt ask me.. but there is something else.. the desktop appear.. and i receive a message like i have to enter password to unlock the login keyring something like that.. can somebody explain me why? what can i do to stop this? i can actually use the computer open folders do anything but the password box keep appearing.
I found much of the info is out of date. I installed Lucid - my /home was on a separate partition so I did not format it to keep the original settings and mail. When trying to send/receive mail, Evolution now asks for the old login password from the previous install to open the mail keyring. "The password you use to login no longer matches that of your login keyring" There is a box to enter the old PW.
SOLUTION: -Go to Applications-Accessories-Passwords and Encryption Keys -Right click on Passwords:login -Select Change Password -Type your old login password in the "Old Password" field -Type your new password in both the Password: and Confirm: fields. -Click OK -REBOOT
Evolution will now use your new login password to access the keyring.
I have recently made a fresh install of Lucid Lynx. After restarting my computer (due to kernel updates), my log in password no longer unlocks my login keyring. I have never changed either password, so there is no "old" password to resort to.How do I fix this? I am not opposed to deleting whatever data is encrypted by this keyring. Also, how might this have happened? This could be a bug; are there any relevant log files or such?
I have Lucid working nicely now, and I've started using Gwibber, which seems to try to connect at login. The only problem is that I'm immediately asked for the login keyring password (which happens to be the same exact password I just entered to log into the machine). This happens every time I boot the machine.
Is there any way to make it stop asking me for this login keyring password? I just don't get why I have to enter the same password twice.
The message is:
Code: The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer.
I'm about to turn off the prompt for a keyring password at logon following these instructions. But I wonder whether I'm going to be losing anything in the way of security. To eliminate the prompt for the keyring password, am I going to miss out on anything? In other words, just what does the keyring do? If it matters, I don't use Evolution e-mail (I just use old-fashioned web mail). To my knowledge the only passwords stored on my machine are that for my wireless network and whatever website passwords my browser stores.
When I boot up my password is requested three separate times by the keyring. Sometimes if I have left my computer to boot up it will actually be requested four times. I get the impression it relates to start up programs, for example if I leave it so that it requests the password a fourth time, at the same time the wifi connection settings pop up requesting the wifi password. I remember having a similar problem before and I think I was able to set a program as always having access to the keyring once logged in, but I can't remember or find how to do this. The programs that are maximized on startup are; transmission, liferea. Docky and gnome-do are also arranged to load on startup.
Well, first off I'd like to say that I am much happier with the wireless on Ubuntu 10.04 than I was on 8.10 (the last time I tried Ubuntu). However, there is a small annoyance I'd like to fix: every time I log in, I get a prompt saying that an application (the wireless network manager) is requesting the password for such-and-such keyring. I have to enter the password before I can connect to my network. Is there a way to get around this somehow so that I don't have to enter the keyring password for this keyring (the "default" keyring) every time I log in?
I'm seeing really bad user login format under a standard installation and am wondering why ubuntu does this as default. I have noticed that the graphical login for gnome sizes itself to accommodate a user's exact password length. This indicates to me that somewhere on the unencrypted part of a standard installation with user encryption contains at least some indication of the content of the password length which seems a security flaw even if not a complete hole, it majorly reduces the number of attempts a cracker would have to cycle through.
And that's assuming that *only* the length is contained. Furthermore it seems that it would be MUCH better to simply display the number of characters entered into the pw field and allowing the gui to expand itself from an fixed size as the field is filled out so the the user still receives visual feedback for entering characters. Either a simple character count display should be entered into the field or a 10 dot to new line so that one can visually quickly count the number enter by multiplying from a 10base graphical observation.
My desktop won't come up automatically now on a hard disk of mine (see below for the Ubuntu version history). It does boot up with Grub etc; then the Ubuntu load up bar thing with the timer spinning around [I hope you can understand this technical language!] goes through ok but then instead of getting the user interface with the little boxes to enter my login and password, the whole screen is in black (as if it's in Terminal mode). This black screen then asks me for my login and password: when I entered them, it said:
Starting up......loading, please wait 19 + 0 records in 19 + 0 records out kinit: [followed by a load of technical stuff and a series of numbers] kinit: trying to resume from /dev/disk/ by-uuid/9b [then a whole series of numbers] kinit: no resume image, doing normal boot.
Not sure how to do this on 9.10. After upgrading I noticed that the login screen is displying the users of the machine; however, I want to login screen to ask for username and password, without showing the users.
Is there a way to get the login screen to disable the saved users? Or a way to make the login screen ask for username and password?
I thought these were the same password?In-fact, they WERE the same password on the set-up I currently have.But now, weirdly, I can log in fine but I the exact same password is not using in order to perform admin tasks.I've tried a recovery mode, console, and then "password (username)" in order to reset the password.This does reset the password I need to use to log in, but the password still does not work for performing admin tasks
One of my users has a bit of a problem. I forced password change for this user, and the user thought that it was simply asking for the password again. I had to use my godlike powers to change the users password again. And here comes trouble.The user cannot log in. The system accept the password and we can see the background screen and some messages, but that is all.Quote:Could not update ICEauthoroty file /home/user/.ICEauthorotyQuote: There are problems with configurationsserver.(/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exit with status 256)Quote:Nautilus couldn't create following folders necessary: /home/user/Desktop, /home/user/.nautilus.Please create these folders before you run Nautilus, or set permission so Nautilus can create them
Second off, I'm trying to capture a user password on login (through gdm) such that I can re-use it for a service like Kerberos or AFS. The idea is that the user has to log in only once, and then I renew the tickets and tokens until they log out again. If there's a better way to do this
I accedently typed in a command in the terminal that made my computer load up without typing in user name or password. i would love you have that back. is there a command that you can use to get back there login screen. i am using ubuntu 9.10. i also dont know what the command was that i typed...
Ubuntu 8.10 does not ask for a password to login. I have only one user set up. I have set the user password from System > Administration > Users & Groups. Still does not ask for password > logs in straight away.
I am an absolute Linux Beginner who is being required to do a bit of admin work because the boss just fired the old linux admin. Unfortunately, one of our employees cannot remember her password to her email account and as such I need to reset it on our linux server.What I want to check is that this email account is actually a linux user account and I simply will reset the password for it using the passwd command from the root login. Is that correct?
I work on a product that have to start automatically an application. Running Opensuse 11.2 So in the inittab I have : 1:2345:once:/root/Velox/VeloxBoot.sh 2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
In the VeloxBoot.sh, if I don't press any key, my application starts after a timeout. If the user presses a key I want to have a login prompt. Unfortunately, if I start /bin/login, I have a prompt with login, but once I enter my login, it does not ask for a password and it says wrong password
I needed to use Synaptic Package Manager to install an app, but the dialog box ("enter the Administrative Password") that pops up before you can use Synaptic doesn't recognize my password ("incorrect password). I tried typing it into a text editor and it's spelled right, caps lock not turned on or anything.
In Terminal, sudo recognizes it, and it is recognized when I log into Ubuntu. I'm the sole user, I have admin privileges, I've been doing admin things.
I just now did System > Administration > Users and Groups and got a dialog box saying
"Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [URL] for information. (Details - 1: Server ping error: IDLmg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0)"
Moving past that, I changed my user password, and Ubuntu authenticated it.
How do you launch Synaptic Package Manager from the command line?
I have a problem with my ubuntu account. I am running 4 virtual machines, based on jeos-8.04 and I am using a public key authentication to login to my account (via ssh). This is not the problem, I have the key and the passphrase. But when I am logged in, I can't sudo, because I forgot the password for the accout.
When booting from the Ubuntu 11.04 CD, it asks for user name and password to install. I downloaded the iso twice and did a checksum. Do I need a user name and password before installing? What is the user name and password? I read the documentation and cannot find any entry about user name and password needed when booting fron CD.
My bose ask me to convert a CentOS system password like "LMPQSMTE0nHlQ" to postfix MySQL MD5 Hased password, I find CentOS seems has 2 kinds of password form, one is shorter and the other is very long like"$1$C2MSk16n$WT5JWnzYH7XpCCjsiE2bd1", however I find postfix is exactly the later long one, so does any one know how to convert the short form to the later one
I have setup a nis server and client. At first I didn't have a local user defined on the client. The client then used the user and passwords from NIS, so that was ok.
The problem then is, that when the server is down, I couldn't login to my client anymore. So I created a local user with the same name on the client but with a different password (after I shut the nis server down, if nis server was on, I couldn't create a local user with the same name). I then edited etc/nssswitch.conf as follows:
Code: # (like no NIS server responding) then the search continues with the # next entry. # # Legal entries are: # # compat Use compatibility setup
If NIS server is on: client has to login with the nis password If NIS server is down: client has to login with the local password (as fallback)
However the actual behaviour is that I can only login with the local password now. The NIS pasword doesn't seem to be used anymore.
At the RHEL prompt, I entered the standard user's username/password combo. Linux displays a message box stating:"Your account has expired; please contact your system administrator."Next, I entered "root" in the username field and entered the root password (which expired also--keep in mind that passwords are set to expire after x days). Linux displays a message box stating:"You are required to change your password immediately (password aged)."When prompted to "Enter current UNIX password", I entered the new password (was that the right thing to do?); Linux displays a message box stating:"The change of the authentication token failed. Please try again later or contact the system administrator."I rebooted the system and got into command line mode; somehow I logged in as "root" (don't know exactly how, but needed to change the password there). At the "#" prompt, I type "passwd root"; Linux displays the message "Changing password for user root", followed by the message "passwd: Authentication information cannot be recovered.
I am not sure if anyone here has any experience with Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux but my problem relates to that product.
I am running 11.2 openSUSE and after installing the latest version of the Kaspersky product in question, I went ahead and restarted the machine. At the logon screen, when clicking my user name to log in, the password box would not display.
I tried clicking on the other option and trying it that way and after putting my name in the username box, the machine just started thinking and thinking and nothing happens.
I also tried logging in through terminal service but it would not recognize my password to be correct.
I really need to log into my username since I have important files on that Linux partition. I tried mounting this partition in Windows since I have a dual boot setup but I can only view the folders of the partition and not the contents.
My goal is this: Allow a user to connect to a server via SSH with any login name or password without checking to see if that account exists on that server. Their account would be captured by a universal account say, 'generic_user', and then they would be directed to one of my python scripts with the username and password they supplied for initial login. At this point my script would capture their SSHD process ID and allow/deny their existence based upon a MySQL/Subscription check.
The part I'm having trouble with is with PAM and allowing the user to login with any credentials and be successfully authenticated under the generic account. Beyond that, everything is great.
