I've had this issue plague me on and off on different Ubuntu distros over the years, and I don't understand how it was ever avoided (I thin I managed to rectify it before), and searching for answers comes up with nothing similar to this problem.
When I do an "svn commit" in my terminal (regular bash shell - local keyboard/monitor), rather than a prompt for my svn password immediately appearing in the terminal, the password prompt happens in a popup GUI window (Ubuntu 18.04 Gnome). I would like Ubuntu/subversion to STOP doing that and prompt directly in my terminal.
I do have the usual "store-passwords = no" and "store-plaintext-passwords = no" in my ~/.subversion/servers file, because that's how I like it. But it seems the "password getter" is handed over to the GUI, which creates the popup window, I cancel that, then the "password getter" is handed back to the terminal window, where the normal and expected prompt happens on the next terminal, line, but only because I cancelled the action from the GUI popup window. of course, had I not cancelled the "password getter" window and just entered my password in it and clicked "OK" it would work just fine. But I just don't want it to do that--if I am working in the terminal, then work should stay in the terminal, and the action of getting TEXT INPUT should not be handled by a GUI window (how dumb). (/rant)
Can anyone tell me how to disable the action of my subversion password being prompted for by a GUI window instead of directly in the terminal?
