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!
