I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS via parallels desktop on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. I have all available updates. When I go into users, it doesn't matter if I set my user account in system settings to automatic login turned off. I've turned it on, turned it off, restarted, repeat. Nothing works. I ran

sudo gpasswd -d USER nopasswdlogin

with USER replace with my own username and it says [sudo] password for parallels: but I can't type anything. I also tried passwd and it says:

Changing password for parallels.
(current) UNIX password:

But again, it doesn't let me type anything.
