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 did these steps to change my username: I like to directly edit /etc/passwd and /etc/groups

First open a terminal, become root
sudo -i
usermod -d /home/new -m old
sed -i -e 's_old_new_g' /etc/passwd
sed -i -e 's_old_new_g' /etc/group<-

My computer shut down after I did the second step and now my password isn't working! I cannot open my home folder or get back to root!

Ubuntu :: System Settings For Proxy Username And Password?

Aug 31, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Security :: System Can't Remember Username Password?

Jun 4, 2011

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?

Fedora X86/64bit :: F14 No GUI Boot - Username AND Password Echoed

Aug 12, 2011

Just started happening this week -- I boot into a terminal (no GUI by default, but I use GNOME when I need it), and when I'm asked to login, I type my username <ENTER>, then I'm prompted for my password...

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.

Ubuntu :: BUG When Entering Root Password?

Dec 5, 2010

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.

General :: Switch Users Without Entering Password?

Mar 12, 2010

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.
