I don’t know what password I put in for my new install!
I assume you’re using the standard installer which doesn’t set up root account to be login-able, so you’ll need to do the live chroot way. Using the installer drive, manjaro-chroot into the system, you will enter it as root, then just:
$ passwd <your username>
enter the password you want to use for that user. Reboot, then login with the new password.
Welcome to the forum!
Boot up from the installer USB/CD/DVD in live mode, open up a terminal window, and issue the following commands…
sudo su - manjaro-chroot -a passwd your-user-name-here
You will be prompted for a password twice, to make sure you typed it correctly. After that, issue the following commands…
sync exit systemctl reboot
Be sure to remove the USB/CD/DVD in time in order to allow the machine to boot up from the installed system again.
Thank you Aragorn. Wilco.
Can I use this process to get my usb wifi working? I have a BrosTrend High Gain AC 1200 adapter that worked great in Mint 21.2 on this machine? The dongle Model is ACL3
Well, in theory, yes, but better start a new thread about that (under Network), because that’s probably a whole other can of worms, and I’m no specialist on account of dongles.
Success! Thank you again Aragorn.
