I am very new to ubuntu, but my question is "what is the administrative pw as it never asked me to enter one and my user pw doesn't work?

Have you installed Ubuntu, or are you using the LiveCD?

If you installed, you will have been asked for a username and password. That's it.

If you are still using the LiveCD - there is no password. If a simple "Enter" doesn#t work, then you have a corrupted download.

There is no administrative password.

There is your user password, and that's it.

If your user is the first user created during installation or a new user you explicitly made an administrator, then you can use your own user password to gain temporary administrative privileges.
