I have successfully launched an Ubuntu OTOY AMI, and I connect to it fine. However, I want to install some libs to test out my software. But, what it is the ubuntu user default password? (I will want to change that asap.)

I figured it out. The desktop user is 'user' and does not have sudo. However, the ssh 'ubuntu' user does. So, just ssh in and install whatever is needed.

The Linux AMI's randomise the user password on first boot of the instance.

you can use
passwd -u user
passwd user

from the ubuntu ssh session, which uses your ssh key
