General :: No Password Or Username Or Grub Prompt On Ubuntu Mac User?
Jan 30, 2010
I have bought a Mac Laptop however it has a username and password which I don't know. I've looked all over to see how I can overcome this lot's of people have said to enter at Grub prompt to take you to recovery, however I have no Grub prompt and Mac is not booting from cd rom.
The homes is suppose to let each user see his/her own home directory. But I tested at the windows side, I found that windows doesn't even prompt me about username or password, it just directly give me "not accessible" error. How do I config so my windows side at least prompt me about username/password?
I'm running Debian Wheezy and I don't know why, but whenI switch to console F1(Ctrl+Alt+f1) I can't enter login information. It's like Debian didn't have completely starting and wait always.The F1 console looks like this:
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 followed instructions to enter single user mode by adding single at the end of kernel line but after that it doesn't ask for root password but brings up the sh# prompt. Isn't that supposed to be insecure? I understand for this the grub password can be applied but even after adding "single" it should ask for root password..or it should not..??
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.
I'm creating a bash script to do some tasks for me. I would like the script to be run at a set time of everyday. My first question is if it is possible that if one of the commands in the script requires sudo, is there a way to get around it with out making sudo not require a password. Such as, is there a way to include the password in the script? If that is the case, I can always just set the file as read only by sudo. I've been looking for a way to do this, with no success. if I have a command that wants input, how do I give it to the program. For example, if I want to make a zip file that is encrypted, the command would go as:
zip -r example * -e
now how would I get the script to insert my wanted password.
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 worked on steps illustrated in [URL]... nagios website documentation. every thing goes smooth in last i stuck to connect it with web-browser. it ask for username and password when i give the same it is not authorizing it(i am giving correct password and user name).
I currently have a UNIX script with a function that uses a username and password to connect to the database, retrieve some information and then exit. At the moment, am getting the username and password from a hidden plain text file and permission set to -r--------, i.e. read only to who own the file. The owner of the file is the same owner of the script. At the moment, am not too overly concern as the script works as it is but I want to know if anyone have a suggestion if there is any better way of achieving the same thing with some "form" of security, i.e., for example, masking the username/password.
Basically, I want to be able to mask or hide the username or password in some way. I've thought about encryting the password file, which is in plain text, using simple crypt command from which I retrieve the username and password but I need to decrypt it as well which is sort of similar to how it will be as it is now once it is decrypted. Is there anyway that I can get a username and password in some gibberish format and then translating them into something usable which can be passed on the next command that requires the username/password.
Its been since October since I accessed my Arch OS, due to a career and phical move. Since that time I forgot my username and password (including root).My question is, is there a way to get around it without starting from scratch? Oh yeah, mbackup live CD is 700 miles away! lol I can only guess what the answer is going to be.

I've installed kubuntu in ubuntu 11.04 using the synaptic manager updates. After the completion of installation & after the reboot it is asking username & password, when I enter my ubuntu username & password it says it was wrong...
i installed acronis on the server end , the problem is that i have disabled the graphical interface on the server i have a acronis management console on a windows system where the image is being created when i try to connect to the linux server it prompts for username and password after i give the credentials then i get this error
i am having trouble connecting to the broadband connection which needs to dial the username and password but as i am very new in the linux how can i connect to the internet. i use ubantu 10.04. is there any application to dial username and password and connect to internet?
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 working on sharing a user's home folder using the username and password of the user's lLnux account. I noticed that home folder sharing is quite easy as I just need to change the smb.conf file to enable it. However I can't seem to login anyway. It seems that Samba keeps its own records of username and passwords. Is there a way that I can map/sync the Linux users' usernames and passwords automatically to Samba? The end result should be that whenever I add a new user or a user changes his/her Linux login password,Samba automatically changes its password as well.
