I am trying to install subversion on my Ubuntu 12.04 desktop. I follow the commands to start this process, using
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install subversion
Either of the above commands then ask me to enter my password. Though my user password allows me to get into Ubuntu, when I enter it here there is no echo back as I enter the password. It acts like nothing is being entered at all. Then when I hit enter, it tells me it failed x number of times. When I have tried to enter it the third time it bombs out and tells me this will be reported.
It does not tell me who it reports it to, considering it is my machine and my desktop installation of Ubuntu 12.04.
I am new to Linux but a very experienced Windows User. I am trying to switch mostly over to Linux (Ubuntu). Am I doing something wrong?
