I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. I can't for the life of me remember my
Authentication Password. In System- User Settings my name, login name
and home directory are shown. Manage Groups is in dark print, but when I
click on it only Help or Close are highlighted. When I click on Click to
make changes, I'm asked to authenticate my password. That is my problem,
I don't know it. I can't even upgrade to the new version of Ubuntu from
the Update Manager because it needs to be authenticated by my password.
I'm hoping that there's a simple way to overcome this problem?
