    Sorry, can't parse your question. Are you meaning sudo? Try pkexec instead of sudo. Does it work? Or you cannot login on a text console? Does graphical login work?

    Anyway, have a look at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword

    Hi

    Have you actually tried entering your password ?

    The password is not echoed to the screen by default although this is changeable by editing the file /etc/sudoers

    Kind regards

    Type your password in and hit enter. Does this work ?

    This often confuses people new to Linux.
