New Users / Reset password
« on: March 12, 2016, 11:33:30 am »
Hi guys.
Something strange happened to me.
My three laptops with peppermint 6.0 decided to forget the password I used when installing. Now I can't access my system because the password I use is incorrect...
I read I should reset the password through grub but holding the shift while rebooting does nothing.
Any ideas?

Hi There
Thanks for offering assistance.
So far- no success.
I've reinstalled peppermint 6.0
Ethernet came back to live miraculously.
I run the preferences and driver update
it recognized that braodcom driver was missing and asked to update and install it.
I confirmed, and it did, but still no WIFI.
I went to update manager
I installed all the suggested updates that apeared there, and restarted the PC.
Back to square one- NO WIFI and the Ethernet is gone as well.
So I reinstalled Peppermint for the third time.
And answering you questions:

New Users / No Wifi [SOLVED]

Hi there
I am a new user to Linux.
I am running an old Dell Inspiron 6400.
The win7 was driving me crazy, so I decided to install Linux.
I heard good things about Peppermint so I went for it...Big mistake.
It took me 4 hrs to realize that your installation does not like my Kingston 8GB USB drive, So I found an older USB and finally was able to install it.
Now that the Peppermint is running, it has no Wifi, not even an icon- NADA.
I tries to use a few guides to install Driver update for the Brodcom but instead of having a wifi connection, I now lost my LAN connection (wire connection directly to my router).
Wrong foot to start my Linux experience.
I need a detailed and simple guide to connect to my Wifi, or I'm going back to Windows...!!!
