Good day... I made a bootable USB stick, with UBUNTU 12.04 desktop (and on my laptop). (It does not work with my desktop... the monitor goes to stand by). I was successful at getting UBUNTU to boot. After using it for a while I was also successful at getting the computer to restart and then made a second stick. I managed to boot to UBUNTU again and used it for a while. Then I made the mistake of logging off before shutting the computer down. Doing so took me to the logon page. When I tried to shut the computer down from there, nothing happened. I tried several times but it would not shut down. I also tried restart several times and it would not do that either. I do not know whether that is the way it is designed, or if that's a new bug. And what I tried to log back on I get an... incorrect password error message.
Is there a default password for the UBUNTU bootable stick?
The directions on how to make the stick do not include anything about a default password. Nor do they warn to create a password before doing anything else, so you don't get stuck. The only two options are for it to be in hibernation or for the logon page to be displayed. I can find no way to get back to the boot selection menu. Which means I do not even have any way of reinstalling an operating system. I hope someone can help... have a nice day... John PS, on looking through the FAQs again to see if I might of missed something before, it looks like it may be suspended it rather than hibernating but the result is the same I can't do anything. Also it did not have me provide it with the user name or password during the construction process.
