Hi Passerby, hi Forum:
Thanks a lot for replying
However, when I try to enter the commands in the Terminal I immediately run into problems.
When I open the Terminal it reads: mintdude@John-NF520-A2-TE ~ $
When I add "CODE: SELECT ALL" after the prompt "mintdude@John-NF520-A2-TE ~ $" and press "Enter" I only get this:CODE:: command not found
Skipping "CODE: SELECT ALL" and entering "sudo apt-get install app-install-data" instead looks like this:mintdude@John-NF520-A2-TE ~ $ sudo apt-get install app-install-data
Pressing "Enter" again prompts me to type my password:[sudo] password for mintdude:
Now, what's strange is that when I try to type my password after the "[sudo] password for mintdude:" prompt no letters appear. Pressing 'Enter' again gets me:Sorry, try again.
After the third "Sorry, try again." and three times pressing "Enter" I get this:sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts
Pressing "Enter" again gets me this:mintdude@John-NF520-A2-TE ~ $
When I now enter my password letters do appear. But pressing "Enter" once more I get this:...: command not found
Btw, "..." is the placeholder for my password.
No idea what the problem is
. Hopefully, though, my description makes some sense?!
Many thanks again.
