[split] Change password from external media
#9
Perhaps only a minor update to the original question I posted earlier. Reason for the delay in this posting, there was a problem on my desktop computer that had prevented me from entering or using ANY sudo commands. The OS on the desktop is Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I followed some suggestions from a user forum for Ubuntu and, basically, reinstalled the OS from a DVD. Once at a menu for setup options, I was able to reset the owner's (my) password and the root password. I also had found another user listed on the computer with a deleted account. I had been unable to delete that user until after resetting my own password. Once that had been completed, I managed to burn a copy of the Manjaro ISO that was downloaded earlier onto a micro USB. With that in the PBP I am now able to at least get to the desktop and into some of the settings. I have not been able to connect to the Internet even though the PBP would use the same WiFi router as my desktop computer.
The questions that remain: At present, the only way I am able to even get to the desktop is with the USB card in the PBP reader at boot. I would prefer to be able to power the laptop on and use it without needing the USB card in the reader. The other question or problem is the WiFi Internet connection. What might I be doing wrong? Thank you for all the help and encouragement this forum has been.
