http://askubuntu.com – Possible Duplicate: How to set a short password on Ubuntu? I was wondering why the developers of Ubuntu made stricter conditions for user passwords than before? My password has to contain letters and numbers, has to be minimum this length, maximum that length. It's quite annoying. And is there any way to bypass these requirements and set my user password to something easy such as 'foobar' ? I'm sorry if this question was already answered but I couldn't find a specific solution. Thank you in advance. (HowTos)
