How to find User Name to enter Linux Mint14

I know the password I entered when starting my Linux for the first time,but did not know that I had to note the user name which was already filled in.How can I find it to enter the Linux?Can anybody help Please?


  • Normally it is the First Name in lower case. My Full Name is Alan Rochester, therefore my username is alan.

    If this doesn't work you could use a LiveCD to see what the Home Folder on the Hard Drive is called. That is probably your username.
  • Thank you,that was very useful.
