[GeoNode-users] need help resetting psql geonode password

Hi, I'm trying to set the password for user=geonode via:

psql -c "alter role geonode with password 'mypasswd';"

but it complains:  psql: FATAL:  Peer authentication failed for user "super"

(or whoever i'm logged in as in my shell)

"super" is the superuser I created during setup ... and if I use the "-U
super -w" flags it prompts for a password but doesn't accept the one I have
set.  I'm sure this is basic and i'm just tired but i'm stumped at the
moment ...

TIA for any help,

ps: also, during setup of my instance local_settings.py was not created.  I
pulled one from another working installation ... hence my need to reset
it.  I've also done "apt-get remove geonode" and reinstalled a couple times
with same ultimate roadblock.
