Ubuntu Security :: Getting Errors "password You Use To Log In To Your Computer No Longer Matches"?

May 31, 2011

I have two things going on with my computer where I'm getting (error?) messages.

One is:

"The password you use to log in to your computer no longer matches that of your log in keyring."

This is in a window that pops up on my desktop after I log in and I have to enter my old password to get in the rest of the way.

I found this: url link and followed the path given in post #2. There, in the list, I find an entry named "uname@host" which shows my new/ changed host name. When I double click it and expand the "password" section at the bottom of the window I find that the password is indeed my new password, not the old one (you can tick box to "show password").

The other is, and I think this is connected:

When I use sudo in the terminal I get: "unable to resolve host"

I went to:

cd /etc; less hosts
and in the second line what I see is the old host name and not the new. I think that if I can correct this second thing, both will be resolved?? Or is that file even relevant to the situation??

If that is true, I want to make sure I go about it in the right way and not end up locking myself out of my own computer or something stupid like that.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Asks For Old Password - Login Keyring?

May 2, 2010

I found much of the info is out of date.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.

-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

Evolution will now use your new login password to access the keyring.

Ubuntu :: Computer Refuses Login And Password

Dec 26, 2010

I am running version 10.10 on an HP envy 14.I just updated the drivers for the video cards, and after I installed them, I was prompted to login to the system. I entered my username and password, and a few seconds later the prompt said "incorrect login" and gave me the same prompt over and over again. I KNOW I'm using the right ID and password, so why isn't it working? How can I get around this?

Evolution has been working fine, then it just will not load. I typed evolution it in the terminal and received the following errors.


I'm on Ubuntu 10.10, and have tried to update, un-install (and purge), reinstall - same errors.

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Janitor Lists As "unused" A Program?

Apr 1, 2010

I ran the Computer Janitor to clean things up a bit, and found that the list of "unused" items is pretty long, ~141.Among the items listed, I found Maxima, Pari-GP and Gnuplot, which are used by Sage, which I use all the time.Is this possibly a mistake? I'm currently using a binary form of Sage, rather than the one available via apt, so maybe these aren't currently being used?Also listed were cpython, ipython and a lot of python-*; does that seem right?

Ubuntu :: Evolution No Longer Tries To Receive Mail ( Lucid )?

Mar 15, 2011

Since Feb 23-24, Evolution (2.28.3) no longer receives any e-mail. When I click send/receive, the usual dialog appears, but finishes real quick, with no messages downloaded. I know there are messages, and Evolution is in online mode. I have tried removing the "remember password" option on all accounts, but evo won't ask for a new password when I try to receive mail. I have tried to delete all accounts from within evolution, and create new ones, but no luck. All accounts are pop servers, and I have also tried turning pop3 extensions off.

Has anyone got any suggestions as to what is wrong here? I'll provide some log files, but will have to clean up usernames, servers etc.

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

Ubuntu :: Slim Login Manager Preventing Computer From Booting To Login Screen

Aug 4, 2011

yesterday i installed slim login manager on my computer (eee pc 1018p, ubuntu 11.04), and now it cannot get passed the ubuntu loading screen (with orange dots underneath) when booting. i tried booting into recovery mode and that didn't work either. i also left the computer trying to boot overnight and that didn't work.
basically, during this loading screen that should eventually bring you to the login screen, i can alt+tab to see the progress of the load. the progress is stuck on

Is there anything I can do from grub to remove slim?or, is there any way I can access my ubuntu partition and save all my files?

Ubuntu :: Sudo And Login Password Recognized - Password Box Does Not Like

Apr 27, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Login - Enter My Password To Login The Screen Becomes Black And Return Me Again

Apr 15, 2011

I just bought this desktop from my friend and it runs win 7 and ubuntu 10.04. it worked very well the first two days until I changed the hostname of the system.

I did like: hostname myNewName

And everything worked fine. The problem now is when I start ubuntu and and reach username and password screen , I enter my password to login the screen becomes black and return me again to the screen where I put my password again. If I entered wrong password , the system message stating wrong password. On the other hand, when I try to run ubuntu from live-cd I can login easily and access my account.

My friend told me he removed Naultius package and reinstall it for some reason before he gave it to me. Note windows 7 is working properly.

General :: Mail Server : Reset The Password For It Using The Password Command From The Root Login?

Jul 23, 2009

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?

Ubuntu :: Computer No Longer Boots Constant Error

Dec 14, 2010

I have tried to keep away from posting this seeing how many have had the same problem but this is getting to the point of me just selling my computer out of shear frustration. Ive got Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04lts. For a while they all ran fine together till my Windows drive gave out and ever since I tried to remove the drive GRUB recovery has been popping up. I even tried to put the drive back in and the computer still wont boot anything. Ive got 4 different live boots and neither one works, Ive tried to boot with my internal dvd drive and a usb one, there is always a Grub error. When I put in the ls command and find my only non"unknown filesystem" it still says "bad filename". I guess where im getting at is grub wont even let me reformat my computer or boot from anything without saying "no such device: 32d98-e0b3-451b-809b-ae6562ccb701"

Ubuntu :: Evolution Prompts For Password?

Feb 6, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.10. When I open Evolution, it prompts me for a password to the default keyring. I am not sure what this is, but I would like to not have to do this. I looked around in Evolution and did not see a way to have this password entered automatically. I searched this forum and it found no results. So I don't know if my problem is unique or not.
