Very Nice Marc!

You can change the administrator user password and the computer hostname using the CLI, just like this:

$ passwd
(if you are logged to the adm. user)
$ passwd LOGIN
(if you are not logged...)

$ sudo nano /etc/hostname
(edit the name of the computer in the network)
$ sudo nano /etc/hosts
(edit the name of the computer on local DNS)

This is it, just reboot after this..

Good morning,

We have been installing Lubuntu 14.10 in the computer labs and on netbooks in our school board. Up to this point we have just been doing the installations by USB and then completing all the configurations manually afterwards. This was fine in the beginning but we have added more tweaks and included more programs as we have grown into this OS and the process is now becoming quite tedious.

I have used Clonezilla to create a Lubuntu image which seems to work fine. How can I change the administrator password and rename the computer after I blast the image onto another computer/laptop?
