I lost all icon from my desktop. When I use the terminal I am able to enter the commands but the keyboard goes dead when ask for my password. The only key that works is the enter key and after 3 enters it starts over and the keyboard starts to work. Help, I'm new to Ubuntu and I really like it but been having problem since I upgraded.
In Ubuntu, when a terminal request a password, you can press all the keys that you want to but the terminal will not show any character in the password field (neither those popular dots).
So it is a normal behavior.
If you still can't connect, you should check the keys that you're pressing.
I left the next screen-shoot, to have a reference:
