I have a clean install of Ubuntu 13.latest on my moms system. I created a single account on it with one password as far as I can remember.
I'm now trying to install a few programs for her and I;m unable to do so. The system promps me to enter the root password which apparently I'm entering wrong.
To log in to the system as the user, I am able to log in using the password I thought I had set as also the root password.
I found this post but this looks like it would change the password for the user, not the root. I'm not sure if this is one in the same but if so, they I would be able to use the same password I used to log in to the desktop.
I can I reset the password for root, would the post mentioned be my ticket?
