Thank you,

I wouldn't use your Ubuntu machine for this. Boot up a live img of Manjaro, on an SD. Identify and mount the emmc root partition, and use chroot to enter the mounted partition. Then you can run 'passwd [user account name here]' in terminal to set a new password for your account. There is no file to find or change.
Only problem with what you suggest; my desktop computer CAN boot and access the Internet, the PBP does NOT fully boot so I am not able to access anything either on the local computer or on the Internet.  What I had suggested was something thai I would be able to do now.  And not having, or knowing where to find, a live img of Manjaro, I am limited to using what is available.
Thank you,
James Good
