View Full Version : [ubuntu] password problems...

January 8th, 2011, 01:52 AM
Hi there, I've been having problems with passwords in general... when i first log onto my computer, it asks me for a password for a keyring, i enter it, and it says its correct. but whenever i try to use the update manager, synaptic, etc. it says that my password is incorrect.

the same is happening with the sudo command. anytime i use sudo, it asks for my sudo password, i enter my user password, and it says it is incorrect. i checked capslock, typing error, etc. couldn't find anything... any suggestions?

Try using the password you use to boot if it's different than your keyring password. GL :)
