This question already has an answer here:

I finally installed Wine (the program to run exe files) and it took a very long time to install.

Now, I have a package configuration window that is pink and looks like this


I don't know what to do at this point and I can not exit out of that window without the whole installation failing and then messing up my sudo apt-get install commands.

I tried hitting Esc and Enter but nothing works.

I've clicked all around the screen too and still, nothing works. PLEASE HELP!

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.

Have you tried pressing Shift+Tab? I believe that should work. Had the same problem a while back. – Frederik Popp May 5 '13 at 13:23
Yep that worked! Thanks! – ajdfjeans May 5 '13 at 13:29

On screens like this, tab cycles forward through the fields. shift+tab cycles backward. You should be able to hit tab once or twice to get to the OK field, then continue.

It looks like you are trying to install it from the command line. I tried to do it the same way and ran into this problem. If you use the Ubuntu Software Center, you will get a yes/no contract and you will be able to use the mouse. I hope this helps.
