I have a computer, running on Linux Mint, that has an empty password. I am needing to install a python module using sudo apt-get install python-pygame in the terminal, but it requires a password. But when I leave it empty the sudo is saying that the password is incorrect. For 1: How do I change my password, and 2: If I can't change my password, how do I install the module?

Hi, you say the password command is empty when you log on - then you ask how can you change the password.
The 'sudo apt-get install' command is only asking for a root password because one must have been set to log into Linux.

As stated in the Forum Rules we cannot help in bypassing or changing passwords.
Bypassing Passwords/PINs/Access Codes
We would not want to help someone gain unauthorized access to a device or website. Posting hacks or cracks to bypass forgotten or unknown passwords, PINs (Personal Identification Numbers) or any other type of access code is not permitted.
That been said - I will now close this thread
