In terminal I keep getting asked for a password. What is my password?
Need further information on when it is asking for password. When you Ctrl-Alt-t to launch terminal do you get as shown in A below or in B below after entering a sudo command (shown is example command). If B it is asking for your login password to execute the sudo command. Note: In B when entering password your keypress's will not show on screen. Also cd command just changes to location of 1.mp4 file.
Edit: lots of commands do not need the sudo command to execute
If you don't know your password reset it. The easiest way is to boot into recovery mode, drop to the terminal and reset the password : 'passwd username' or 'passwd root'.
Thanks for your help. I get A when on Terminal.
A? What does that mean?
A refers to mendy's reply asking which of the two screen shots I get when opening terminal.
I missed that. Thanks!
