[SOLVED]Forgotten password

Post by jakke5 »

I have a major problem: my lmde2 won't accept my password any more. I'm pretty sure it's the correct one but I think the machine's memory is better then mine :( :(
Fortunately I choose not to ask for the password at startup.
What can I do?

Thx.
In the actual situation I only am not allowed to use applications for which the administrators password is needed (for instance to install new software)
Will the new password apply to the administrator(=me) only or to the administrators HOME too?

To your user, for example for 'jakke5', and for root user you need to know (reset) password.
The password will apply to the user, that you specified in 'passwd' command.
