Please, could someone give me some advise ? I put linux mint debian xfce on my brothers computer and we can not log in. He forgot the password and I can not remember what I used. I know that I can do a re-install but I rather not unless I absolutely have to. Is there a way of resetting the password ? I have tried using the terminal with the command " passwd " but it ask or the current password......... we don"t know the password so that doesn't work . I have googled the problem but can not find anything that will work. Everything that I find is for Ubuntu.
Any idea"s or instructions would be appreciated.
