    Re: Recovering my admin password

    What do you mean by "admin" password? There is no such user in ubuntu.

    The first user created during the installation has admin rights. So, did you forgot your password?

    To reset a user password in ubuntu:
    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword
    Darko.

    No, it just creates new password for the user. All applications and data are still there untouched.

    No, it doesn't ask for any password. When does it ask you for root password? You simply select Drop to root shell from the recovery menu, and the shell opens (command line).

    After that you continue with the instructions.

    You can not "recover" a password, period. What you can do is "reset" a password, as in, assign a new one. There is no software available that will let you "recover" passwords.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
