Re: Terminal/pw/problems

Postby Crypto_Seal » Fri Jul 28, 2017 8:35 am

I have finally decided to dive into the abyss of the terminal and the world of crypto currencies. I am trying to sync., the Nano S Ledger hard wallet with my Mint OS and I have been instructed to do the following: 1. create a set of udev rules to allow access to the device on Linux, by running the following command: wget -q -O - https://www.ledgerwallet.com/support/add_udev_rules.sh | sudo bash - I have copied and pasted the command - pressed enter and I am asked for the password for - however, the cursor blinks and nothing happens when I try and type my pw - I am at a loss - help would be much appreciated :D

Welcome to the Mint family forums.

Most problems already have a fix
search
read
ask
If you need to ask please copy and paste the result of terminal code inxi -Fnx with your question
And take your time to avoid disappointment.

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Hi Crypto_Seal, welcome to the forums.

I suspect that the file you downloaded via wget doesn't have its executable bit set, the file (add_udev_rules.sh) should be in the directory that you ran the wget command from. Opening a terminal (if not opened any more) and typing

Code: Select all

ls -al |grep add
should list the downloaded file and display the permissions.

Code: Select all

chmod +x add_udev_rules.sh
should add the e'x'ecutable bit.

To run the script, with elevated privileges that isn't in your path

Code: Select all

sudo ./add_udev_rules.sh
The terminal by default doesn't acknowledge a character input for a password, it doesn't respond with a '*', just type in your password and hit enter.

Welcome to the forums.
Don't forget to edit your original post and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the Subject line if your problem has been fixed.
My main language is English. I speak very little Portuguese, and a whole lot of gibberish.

Thanks for this reply!
I came also with this issue with my new Ledger Wallet and, although I am an old linux user, I didn't suspect that the scrip downloaded without executable permission!
You saved me a big time! Thanks again!! :D :D
