I'm a retard! lost root password, cant use sudo! (ubuntu 10.04)
ok, so: i was messing around in compiz and accidentally de-opacitized all my windows so i cant see anything whatsoever, not even terminal. so i figured i'd just switch to a secondary account i had rather than go through the trouble of trying to edit compiz configurations by hand. i deleted the profile with a secondary admin account i have. the account has a password, (which i forgot) but doesnt require it to log in, so i can access all my apps okay, but cant install, uninstall, or elevate user rights, or even change my own password. im so damn clueless, and i really dont want to have to reinstall just to be able to use my machine again. quick replies are greatly appreciated
