How to obtain the ‘root’ user password on CudoOS, if you are presented with a login screen after boot.
On the Ubuntu login screen, press the key combination Ctrl+Alt+F2 to switch to an alternative command-line terminal. This should automatically log you into the system as the ‘root’ user.
You can then enter the command ‘cat ~/localpassword.txt’ to output the currently-set ‘root’ user’s password. The prompt will show immediately after the password, so just take heed of the characters before that.
Note that the auto-generated password when CudoOS first runs will be pseudo-randomly generated, and will be 8 characters long.
If you experience this problem, where auto-login to the desktop fails, and you have to complete the above steps, we would be very interested in hearing from you, so we can obtain Ubuntu logs from your system, to try and prevent this bug from happening to other users in the future.
