Copied someone’s possible solution ??

The default username is ubuntu, and the password is blank on an Ubuntu LiveCD.

Brent posted the following over on Serverault:

If the username “ubuntu” with an empty password doesn’t work, you may be able to add a new user to the system as follows.

Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and run this command:

sudo adduser username

Meanwhile in some other Ubuntu-Based Distros (especially official ones), the username goes by their distro name (e.g: Xubuntu=‘xubuntu’, Lubuntu=‘lubuntu’ etc) though you can also find the username of it on some distros by looking at the upper-left hand corner.

It’s also tty with requirement login and password

It does not work for lunar-desktop-arm64.iso
