    aysiu - How does this affect the keyring manager with regards to wireless? Will the user still need to enter a keyring password or a wireless password? Is there a way to eleminate that too?

    This is a completely different thing. This is for blank user passwords, not blank keyring passwords.

    You can blank the keyring password, too, but that's a separate process.

    Re: HowTo: Create a Passwordless / Guest Login (Simple Method)

    I read this and thought.. I never had to do anything that complex to get a guest with no password before.. I just do the following in /etc/shadow


    guest::14359:0:99999:7:::



    ie: the password field is empty.

    seems to work for me fine. Any differanes vs the 'encrypted empty' password used in this thread? This way seems a lot easier.

    If you lost your admin user password, you should reset it using these instructions:

    I just found out in 10.04 that it doesn't work for terminal logins. Better use the magic U6aMy0wojraho
