    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    Yes, it did change the config files. My common-auth file now looks like this (again, some commented out bits removed for brevity):

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    Sorry, ignore me. It didn't bork my Samba sharing at all, it was my own stupidity that did that. Forgot that I'd disabled it on the test system. Have enabled it again and it now works after running...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    OK I've tried the steps you suggest. It hasn't actually got rid of my "Wrong password" message, and it's also borked my Samba sharing: I can no longer connect to Samba shares using a Windows password...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    I am indeed, but that's because I'm doing all this on a test installation. The consequences are pretty minimal if I bugger everything up completely.

    Anyway, thanks for the suggestion: will give...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    And now I've done the obvious next experiment, and swapped those 2 lines back again. Now it turns out I can log in with either my Windows or Ubuntu password, and can also authenticate sudo commands...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    OK, so I did the experiment, and swapped those first 2 lines over. Wasn't quite what I was expecting. I now need to enter my Windows password to log on. If I try entering my Ubuntu password, it...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    Yeah, I know squat about PAM as well, and I'm beginning to think that could be the cause of my problems here. :oops:

    Anyway, this is what my common-auth file looks like (some of the commented...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    Yes, indeed I did. I messed with /etc/nsswitch.conf and with 3 of the files in /etc/pam.d: common-account, common-auth, common-session.

    Is this beginning to sound like a PAM problem?

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    I get the errors whenever I type a command starting with "sudo" and enter my password. It doesn't matter what the command following "sudo" is, the behaviour is always the same. I get a "Wrong...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    Don't think it's likely to be anything to do with bad disk sectors. I have exactly the same problem on 2 different machines that I've set up in the same way.

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    OK, so I did the experiment of logging directly into the terminal rather than doing it by SSH. I got exactly the same result (with "login" substituted for "sshd" in the log file), so I don't think...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    Well, that turns out to be a rather interesting question. It wasn't what I expected.

    What happens is I get the same "Wrong password" message, but then it prompts for my password again. No...

    [ubuntu] cron job "authentication failure"

    I'm having some problems getting cron jobs to run.

    If I want to get a cron job to run under my own user account, using crontab -e, then that works just fine.

    However, if I want to get a cron...

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    Thanks for that suggestion.

    Yes, I think I am indeed seeing something that might give hints, though what exactly they're hinting at I'm not sure. When I try to run a command as sudo I don't see...

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Notification reports connected to network, but it's lying

    Oh dear. It turns out that the problem wasn't solved at all. Oddly, it worked fine for a couple of days after I installed the updated driver, but now it's failing to connect again.

    Any ideas?

    [ubuntu] Re: "Wrong password" message on sudo

    I don't think so. At least I haven't knowingly done anything to enable it, and unless I've misunderstood how these things work, it's disabled by default, right?

    Just a thought, but I think this...

    I've tried it for a whole load of different commands. Always the same result. Message is "Wrong Password", but the command executes anyway.

    [ubuntu] "Wrong password" message on sudo

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Display problems with Unity in Ubuntu 13.04

    Oh, thanks for that suggestion. Should I try that while using the proprietary driver or the default?
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Display problems with Unity in Ubuntu 13.04

    Thanks, but the post you link to talks about reverting to default settings. I don't think that can be the problem here, as I'm having these problems with a fresh install.

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Notification reports connected to network, but it's lying
