    There is no default root password.

    I've used the way showed in a post inside this forum where is indicated a way for a 32 system and a little variation for the amd64 one.

    But, as I told before I've not been able to use my Lexmark on the second Ubuntu.

    Do you have a suggestion for me, since I see that You have a Ubuntu 64 O.S.?

    Sorry for my bad English, but I'm from Italy..................

    Best Regards, have a nice day.

    edit : (*) I mean Lucid Lynx 10.04 32-bit and Lucid Lynx amd64 64-bit, of course.
    I recently was able to install the drivers on 64-bit and print. Maybe you should try again?

    Yes, so how do you restore it to that condition?

    not sure. probably something with adding -d to passwd. see "man passwd".

    'man passwd' only appears to reference user passwords

    It also refers to the root user. This code worked for me:
    Code:
    sudo passwd -d root

    I think you are correct. By changing the password to "!" you are both deleting the password and locking the account. The following code gives the same effect:

    Code:
    sudo passwd -d -l root

    sudo getent shadow root|cut -d : -f 2
    on a 'as installed installation' root password returns
    Code:
    !
    been unable so far to establish if the condition is locked or unlocked
