Need To Reset Password

Postby tb75252 on Sat Oct 13, 2012 8:32 pm

I am using Linux Mint Debian Edition 201204, 64-bit.

When I reach the login screen I am informed that my password is not correct.
Something in the password file must have gotten corrupted because I am absolutely sure that I am entering the correct password. I even have it written down on a piece of paper which is in a hidden place...

Anyhow, how do I reset the password?

Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Then why aren't you posting this in the LMDE support section :) Moving it there...

Anyway, this will probably also work on LMDE: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/339
