Forgot password for acer tablet/aspire one


The default root password for an Acer Aspire One running Linpus Lite is 111111
So open a terminal, and enter
Code: [Select]
and the password 111111 when asked.
your prompt should change from an $ to a #
If it's the user password you want to change, now enter:
Code: [Select]
you will be prompted for the new password twice

[END EDIT]
You'll need to get the into advanced mode - you'll see why once you've done it. To do this go to "Files" > "My Documents" to open the File Manager. Then go to "File" > "Terminal" (use the word menu at the top of the File Manager window.

Linpus Linux uses Xfce, so use "xfce-setting-show" to get the Xfce Settings Manager.
Click on "Desktop" to get to the "Desktop Preferences" and select the "Behavior" tab.
Now under "Menus" click the "Show desktop menu on right click" option and close the window.
This setting will allow you to bring up the normal desktop menu when you right click somewhere on the desktop. The Desktop Menu contains many more options than the limited user interface on the Aspire One.
OK. Now you're in advanced mode, right click somewhere on the desktop to bring up the menu. Go to "system" and then go to "terminal"

Once the terminal has opened type this:
Code: [Select]
sudo -su it will prompt you to enter a password. type this:
Code: [Select]
passwd It will now prompt you to enter your new root password (Just type it - you won't see anything appear but it's registering it).
You'll be happy to hear it asks you to repeat the password to make sure you were paying attention...
Note: That the password can be anything you want but needs to be longer than 6 characters.
Done!

Hi,

It sounds like you have an Acer with the Linux Lumpus OS installed on it.

When it ask's you for the root password the password is root. Just type root into the password box. and then install the flash player.

Cant get into the network center on my acer aspire 1 ,


If this is an aspire One with linpus lite linux,

The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.

The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.

The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.

You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.

Make preinstalled vista


If not, the guys who sold yhe pc should install it for you, since a part of the computers price is for the OS, or at least they should provide you a recovery DVD.
