Reddit: I lost my account password, what can I do?

Sunday 9th of August 2015 04:37:34 AM

I won't lie i'm not very knowledgeble in Linux, I had a classmate set it up for me a few months ago. Stupid me didn't bother to remember the password, and now I'm in a weird situation. It's not the root password, it's the password for the admin account. Somehow it bugged out and logged me in after a long time of password guessing. So now I can change the password but I need the original password to be able to change it. Is there a way for me to reset it or figure out my password, or do I have to do a reinstall, and if so how do I do that? I don't mind having to do a full install if I have to. I'm on Xubuntu 14.10

Thanks!

xpost /r/sysadmin - I've written a simple Python tool that will tar and GPG encrypt data and move it somewhere locally. This can be used to push encrypted backups to various cloud services.

I've written a guide here

Hope someone can find it useful. I realized this is Linux/UNIX specific so seems better to post it here in hindsight.

Reddit: are all desktop environments universally resource intensive no matter what operating system it's installed on? conversely is the DE the main component that impacts an OS' performance?

Friday 7th of August 2015 10:50:00 PM

for example, LDXE is considered to be the objectionably lightest graphical environment compared to something like Gnome 3. would installing Gnome 3 on Lubuntu have the same performance as native UbuntuGnome would?

would Gnome 3 also have the same impact if you put it on Arch or OpenSUSE, ect.. is the DE truly the main factor in OS performance

Developer lowers Drupal's barrier to entry

From a consumer perspective, I'd like open source to be ubiquitous to the point of invisibility. Using recent Ubuntu distros, I'm always shocked at how professional the environment feels. Just five years ago, you'd need to hunt down drivers and do a bunch of fiddling to get basic things like a sound card working. Now there are so many pushbutton ways to deploy open source tech, from OSes to CMS distros on Pantheon to buying an Android-powered mobile phone. We're not quite to the point where CMS users can feel like open source is transparent; there's still a huge investment in vendors to give you the expertise to manage your Drupal or WordPress site, for example. But we're closer than we were a decade ago, and that's pretty exciting. Read more
