Ubuntu – Nothing shows up in the terminal when I type the password

command linepasswordsudo

When I'm about to install a program in the terminal it wants the password:

[sudo] password for xxx:

But when I start to type my password nothing happens. What should I do?

  • Even though no characters appear when you type your password, you are actually typing your password.

    So type password, then hit Enter and see the magic.
