Nope; I tried running a terminal command with su privileges and had the same problem minus the username.

all old answers wrong

I don't know when this changed, but the online Zorin docs are wrong, as are the answers in this thread for recent Zorins. I needed to test for some inxi research. The iso issue is irrelevant, I'm booting off the iso in vm, so there was no question about a bad burn.

After trying every possible combination, I thought to myself, ok, what other clever login could they do?

So I typed in as login name: zorin

and the login happened, no password needed.

I needed to login because the desktop hung/crashed, and I needed to get to console F1 to do some root things to get it to work so I could run my tests.

So this updates this thread, the current as of 2018 username to live cd is zorin, and it just logs you in without password as soon as you type it in.

I hope this helps someone out there.
