    Hello!
    I guess you’ll need to use the livecd, mount your partitions and change the password, not sure if there is another way. Let1s wait for someone else…

  • instead you can press Ctrl+Alt+F2 you will get a new login page but in konsole. Then you can change the password.
    You remember root password? Because if you don’t remember any password i don’t know!

  • Hi there!

    Hate to crash the party, but I believe the root password is the same as the login password normally though… (at least it was by default for me).

    Hopefully I’m wrong!

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

  • So may be more easy to reinstall

  • That’s what I’m thinking right now, but first I think we should call in the expert, @joekamprad. Maybe he will have an idea that we aren’t aware of?
