downloaded ubuntu onto chromebook recently; still stuck with needing password that won't let (unless enter from some other way) me push any other button but enter; when enter is pushed, it says failed password; WHAT TO DO?

if the key strokes for your password don't show up try typing them anyway and hit enter.

Further replies are probably unnecessary.

The OP joined, posted his question and left on January 23rd....and has not been heard from or visited the site since then
