comment How to ENABLE password for administrator account so I am prompted when I log in?
Hi and thanks for the info. But I guess I am not explaining myself well... I dont want to log in as root, I am sure I dont want to have the possibility to screw my computer ;) However, I would like to be asked for the password of my account when I log in (my account being the one with administrator privileges when I first installed Ubuntu). Right now, I start my PC and I can log into the system without entering any password... even if later the keyring asks me for the password I am able to do multiple things on the computer without entering it. (my User says I should be asked for password).

@ Eliah, Thanks for the post. I have tried some of the things on that link.. but as you can see there are many people offering advise and there are multiple advises given. My main concern is to do something on the system and have to reinstall it because of a mistake I might make without noticing it. Is any particular advise better? I appreciate the time! Alex

Hi, I mean the initial account. I made the mistake of removing the password as I found it inconvenient. Then realized I shouldn't have and fixed it through the root in Terminal. The password is enabled now, but when I start my computer I am no longer asked to enter a password. (I want to be requested the password again).... thanks a lot!
