Software :: Su And Sudo Don't Say What Password To Enter

Feb 11, 2011

I wonder how to make su and sudo say what user's password to enter?

It's not a big problem for me because I have the same password for both my normal account and the root account, but still it would be nice.

Ubuntu Security :: Terminal Does Not Let Enter PASSWORD

Jul 31, 2010

The terminal does not let me enter PASSWORD (or anything else) for SUDO prompt. My password still works to boot up and for syntactic. Surely changing terminal background color from purple to green did not cause this.

While trying to find an Open Office document I stupidly lost, I meandered around to LOST & FOUND "You (me) are not the owner, so you can not change these permissions. Does this relate to password problem?

OpenSUSE :: Require A User To Enter Password To Open Terminal?

Sep 21, 2010

I'm in the process of configuring a "guest" account for houseguests tose my computer. I've got the file permissions set, but I'd also like to restrict their access to the terminal. It seems to me that most of the damage that can be done to a computer goes through the terminal.I downloaded Pessulus (I use Gnome)but it doesn't require a password. the profiled user can just open Pessulus and alter their profile -- what's the point?Is there a way I can require a user to enter a password, either for any terminal or Pessulus?I like Pessulus -- it's concise and easy to use. But it doesn't seem very secure as I understand it.

Debian Installation :: No Network-Manager - Pull Up The Terminal And Enter A Command To Start?

Sep 1, 2011

I downloaded Debian Stable last night, and everything appear to go smoothly. Today, I booted up the new OS to try it out for the first time. As I was exploring a few of the features, I decided to pull up a web browser. No internet connection.

No big deal, I thought, as I searched around for a way to connect wirelessly. I couldn't find a way to do so. I consulted one of my more Linux savvy friends, who advised me to pull up the terminal and enter a command to start the network-manager. According to the terminal, no such file currently exists on my system.

This is a bit of a conundrum for me, since I am on my university campus with no ethernet cord to attempt a direct connection. Is there any way to get the network-manager onto my computer? Also, did I mess up somewhere in the installation, or did someone not package the file with CD1 for some unknown reason?

Fedora :: Enter Password For Default Keyring To Unlock

Nov 30, 2009

I have installed Fedora11 onto my Dell laptop; as nice as it is whenever I log in I am prompted to "enter password for default keyring to unlock". Now, I don't recall ever setting one up, each password I try (e.g. the user or root) fails and gives me the prompt again. After a few clicks of "deny" it does go away but I want to know what it is and if I can stop it from prompting me).

Fedora Installation :: Enter The Password And Get - Authentication Failure - 12

May 9, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12 on HP Pavilion (dual boot with Windows vista). I made it all the way through the installation and created my user account. A few seconds later I got the login screen asking for my password. I enter the password and get "Authentication Failure."

The name that shows up on the login screen is my full name, not the user name that I created. Is that wrong?

Ubuntu :: Where To Enter Commands Like $ Sudo /usr/etc/eth0

Aug 28, 2010

I am a Mac/ Windows user, forced to use Linux for my college work. I do not know where to enter commands like $ sudo /usr/etc/eth0 mvntz -do4i or how to make them work

I had a problem - the Wi-fi card in my laptop was not working. All the forums were useless. They wanted me to READ about wireless networking !

Finally a good friend solved the problem in a simple way : it appears Ubuntu has not installed the drivers for my Broadcom wireless card since it was not open source. I had to download it myself. Here is how : Go to System menu on the top bar. Choose administration/ hardware devices. Tell it to activate the device. It will download the drivers through the cable attached to DSL modem and install.

Then clicked the network icon, selected edit connections, and entered my wireless network name and password. This solved all problems.

Why doesn't Linux give me a warning that the driver for something is not yet installed ? When I was struggling with the network setup wizard for the whole day, there was no clue about the missing driver.

General :: Sudo Broken. Unable To Enter Recovery Mode To Fix It?

May 5, 2011

I broke sudo when I wrongly edited a file in /etc/sudoers.d in vi(did not use visudo :-().I read that I could fix the same by rebooting into the 'Recovery Mode' by selecting the same from the grub menu.

However I'd earlier disabled the showing of the grub menu by editing /etc/default/grub. As a result I can't seem to go into recovery mode to fix my broken sudo.

I have a rather difficult problem. Every time I need root privileges and I am asked to authenticate (i.e. Update Manager, mounting a partition, etc), the password window comes up, shakes and immediately closes, leaving me with no chance to enter a password.

Ubuntu :: GUI Does Not Allow To Enter Username And Password

Feb 1, 2010

When I installed Ubuntu on my laptop, I had chosen "automatic login" . So i was not asked ofr username and password everytime I switched on. I later wanted to change the settings. So I went to systems-->administration-->login window-->security. There I disabled automatic login and I reboot the computer. Now the GUI does not allow me to enter Username and password. It says "Authorization denied" at the login screen.

Ubuntu :: Can't Enter @ Symbol In Password

Oct 30, 2010

After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10, my laptop wouldn't boot into the GUI. I followed some steps that someone had posted at was able to get X back and working. Now, my laptop lost power without being shut down. I let it fix my disks, and I'm now back in the command line and can't get X working. Here's the weird thing...in the command line, I can enter my username ok, but it won't accept my password. I've figured out that it is the @ symbol in my password that messes things up. (I figured this out because when I typed something in the username, like "test" and then hit the @ key, it erases "test". I imagine it does the same thing and erases my password.)

I have a laptop with 2 partitions . The second partition is called 'Data' and is for storing files. Every time I want to access it, I have to enter the root password. This is not a big deal but its tiresome when trying to run a program like Picasa. The folders where the pictures are located are in the data partition and if I forget to mount the partition, then the folders are not accessed under Picasa.How can I avoid entering the password every time. The data partition would be better opened automatically when the laptop boots up

Ubuntu :: Ssh And - Enter Password To Unlock The Private Key

Oct 30, 2010

Since upgrading to Meerkat, I have been getting a pop-up window with the message "Enter password to unlock the private key" every time I attempt to ssh into a server that does NOT use password authentication. I know some people like the remember password "feature", but I prefer just a plain unadulterated ssh session in a terminal. Does anyone know how to stop this message?

So far I have unsucessfully tried:

None of the above worked - and I was sure to log out and back in before testing the behavior.
