How do I reset a lost administrative password?
I only have the user set up when I installed Ubuntu 12.10. I don't need a password and I want it to log in without prompting for a password.
In User accounts I clicked the unlock padlock (I think I entered the password). I then set the password to none and automatic login to on. I then clicked on the lock padlock.
I thought all was good.
Now when I trying and install software I get the prompt for my password. Neither my old password or nothing works. I cannot sudo anything
In User accounts I cannot click the unlock button so I am locked out of doing any modifications.
my goal is to not need a password. The system does not need to be secure but please assist this newbie.
