I just did a test install on my computer with Ubuntu 16.10. I encrypted the drive with a yubikey static key, and finished the installation with norwegian keyboard settings.
On initial launch after installation the key/passphrase did not match. I found a thread telling me to install using US Keyboard, and then change keyboard layout once inside ubuntu. I did, and the passphrase now works.
Now, the password i used for my user includes a
&, witch on a norwegian keyboard is
Shift + 6. On a US keyboard thats the
^. This is all well and good, knowing this I logged in and changed the keyboard layout.
Now I'm trying to change the password for my user, typing the password with
^ and trying to change it to
&. I used
sudo passwd in the terminal, and it returned successful. But the password has not changed - the
^ is still needed to log in and do sudo commands.
Any idea why this is happening?
