Did you try the answer by @ohnMilton from… ? What didn't work? – david6 Oct 20 '12 at 21:12
did you try the command line solution in the link provided by @david6 ? – Suhaib Oct 20 '12 at 21:35
Yes, I tried all the solutions from that link. When I launch "seahorse" or "Passwords and Keys" it does not give me an option to change the password anymore. This is in Ubuntu 12.10. – user99305 Oct 21 '12 at 19:22
turns out I can't change the password in Ubuntu 12.10 preventing one from changing the password: – user99305 Oct 21 '12 at 19:38
This question should not have been closed (how is it off-topic!?). The answer is in @user99305's comment above. There is a bug in 12.10's seahorse preventing users from fixing this problem. – Andrew Nov 2 '12 at 14:03
