No cursor output on the sceen when typing password in terminal

I am running Ubuntu 12-10.

This is my trouble:
When I write (for example) sudo apt-get install Wine in Terminal all seems ok until the program asks for password. The problem is that the place to write is blocked by a white rectangle so writing is impossible! Please help, Perolof

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

it's not blocked. That is security.

Just type your password and press enter.

It's so that people looking over your shoulder can't see the length of the password you typed 10 mins ago. – coteyr Nov 15 '12 at 20:11
