Re-Enabling User Account After Upgrading Ubuntu Linux from 10.10 to 12.04LTS
Posted on 2013-06-07
Just upgraded a desktop PC from Ubuntu 10.10 to 12.04LTS using CD install (online update failed).
I am able to boot up into the new account (which I called test) I created during the upgrade. But I cannot log into the original account (called richard).
From Terminal, I see there is a /home/richard directory where I can see all the user files.
How can I re-enable that richard account?
