In a terminal (ctrl alt F1)
--doesn't quite work, you also have to really know your logged-in name (your user ID)
    passwd
If you know the current passwd (password), it can be changed, also check groups, you should see your user name

Else! ...
Ctrl Alt F1 or start in a console session, I dfon't know if Mint has that selection on their menus..

Code: Select all

 Assign a root password
To be able to log in as root directly, you must assign a root password. This can be done with:
sudo passwd root
--then fix your users and groups

Linux mint..forgot passord
