The easiest method of resetting a user’s account password in Linux is to use the passwd command. To do it on Linux Mint or any Linux distribution that uses sudo, start a shell terminal and type the following command:
You will, of course, be prompted to authenticate with your current password before you are given the opportunity of changing it. On a distribution that does not use sudo, call the passwd command without sudo.
Worked great but little confused when cursor did not move or reflect any echo of any kind yet did work as I suspected. thanx
I need to find a place to change the password of this website login. I cannot find where it is changed, because I forgot it, but then I got a crazy one via email which I need to change. Can someone point to me where is the password to access this site?... Thanks
worked fine thanks
That´s very easy, thank you! :)
Thanks for the warning.
Now the image is seen again.
Short and sweet. Nice :)
Also, if you are on a system with more than one user, running sudo passwd other-user-name will allow you to just as easily change their password.
An excellent to-the-point article.
