Re: Installation password doesnt work for root

open to first user (administator's ) go to a teminal and type this command

Code: Select all

passwd
then enter new password for that user.
see if it will work with sudo. Good luck.
That is I assume you've been trying to get raised privileges using sudo not su. su will not work in Mint as it's presently configured.
