Whenever I try to change settings for the Admin account or download any files/programs it asks for a password. I do not know/remember this password. I've tried resetting it and making a new account using ROOT, but it wont let me. when I try to change my password, this comes up. "Authentication token manipulation error". I would greatly appreciate some help in this matter.
I suggest these steps for resetting the root password from the grub boot loader. It works great for Kali Linux and should also work for other Linux distros.
