Crunchbang Linux - change password

To change your password in Crunchbang there are two things you must do:

01 - Change the password
Right click on the desktop
Click Terminal

At the $ prompt type:
sudo passwd <username> [Enter]

You should replace <username> with your Crunchbang username.

Take note that the command "passwd" is not "password" ;-)

02 - Delete the Keyring
You will also need to delete the keyring file otherwise when you restart the computer it will ask "Enter password to unlock your login keyring":

At the $ prompt type:
rm ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring [Enter]

Close the Terminal window
Right click on the desktop
Click Exit
Click Reboot

When you restart the computer, login as usual.

You may also see the following:

If you see the above enter your WiFi password and click Connect

Your WiFi password will now be saved and the next time you restart your computer you will not need to enter it again.
