View Full Version : [ubuntu] username/password--What?

October 13th, 2009, 05:30 AM
So I am installing Ubuntu 9.04 (AMD64). Everything works well. It asks me if I want to reboot now or manually. I select now. The system reboots and it gives me the option of either windows or ubuntu. Beautiful.

Heres the kicker, ubuntu loads and asks me for my username and password, and the font is really really really small. I never saw is prompt screen where I can give my info and stuff or select a username and password. I assume perhaps the administrator username and password migrated from windows. Nope. I was wrong. So now I am stuck I cannot log into Ubuntu and I am about to **** my pants. I need to log in, like last year. HELP ME!!!

You should have been asked to create a username and password.

No matter. You can just look up the username and reset the password:
