What is the default user/password?

Default users and passwords depend on the Linux version:

  • Ubuntu : try ubuntu/blank (no password)
  • Kubuntu : try kubuntu/blank (no password)
  • XBMC Live : try xbmc and xbmc as password too
  • PCLinuxOS : try guest/guest and root/root
  • Slitaz : try tux/blank (no password) or root/root
  • DreamLinux : try dreamer/dream
  • Element Linux: try element/blank (no password)
  • Salix : try root/live
  • Parted Magic : try root/partedmagic

If you want to switch to root user in a terminal try these commands:

su -

Root password is usually blank (no password).
