I have recently installed Ubuntu Server on my machine - successfully. However, the system does not read my keyboard input on the password on login. Is there something I did not do right? How do I go about fixing this problem?
Passwords are meant to be secure, and therefore (to prevent 'shoulder surfing') are usually suppressed (or replaced with an 'asterisk' per character).
For a graphic interface ('GUI') that makes sense, and you may even have a dialog box option to 'view password'.
For a server (which may be remote) it is more secure to simply suppress any response, or visible cue, to what is being typed. That may be confusing the first time, but will be second nature once you understand the reason.
