Unhappy how to get username and reset password on Ubuntu


Have tried opening kernel and typed cd/home but no response. Is it easier just to re-install Ubuntu

What exactly is the problem? Have you installed Ubuntu, but do not know your username and password?
To find out your username, open a terminal (applications > accessories > terminal) and type whoami. The output will tell you your username.
If you are unable to login because you forgot the username and password you set when you installed Ubuntu, see this to find your username and reset your password:

And welcome to the LQ forums!
