I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed and have read many articles on finding a way to change the admin password as i forgot it after installing it a while ago. I have 2 users on this comp which i know the pass to 1 but the admin 1st user i can no longer get into. I have tried many ways like going through grub, root and trying to unmount. i have had it tell me several times that the password has been updated successfully and i still cant login. If i am in my other user and i try to install things and use the password that i changed it to it works but actually logging into the main user account wont work after hours of racking my brain and following threads of things that are supposed to help. I just want to get my work back and films that are in that account. Someone please tell me something new that works...lol...it would be so much appreciated! Thx
