Recently when I lock my Ubuntu 14.04 account I have to write my password twice in two different places before getting in. This happened recently. I think I might have installed some stuff that I saw on YouTube and maybe this was one of them. If so, how do I delete stuff that I installed from the terminal?

It must be one of these because those are what I installed from the terminal:

Install pipelight so silverlight works:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pipelight-multi

Enable silverlight plugin:

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight

Enable widevine plugin:

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable widevine

To get flash woking in chromium (chrome pepperflash):

sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install

Install restricted extras:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Install unrestricted version of libavcodec for encoding and decoding:

sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra

    "I have to write my password twice in two different places before getting in." Can you describe this in greater detail? It's not clear why you have to enter it twice, or how you're doing so. – Eliah Kagan Sep 15 '14 at 12:46

Try the following in the terminal:

ps aux | grep screensaver

Chances are you've got 2 different screensaver daeomns running at the same time. Like gnome-screensaver and mate-screensaver.

For me, because I only use mate, I ended up uninstalling gnome-screensaver.

To uninstall a programm using terminal please use this :

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove packagename
  • Would that actually fix the problem with unlocking the screen, though? – Eliah Kagan Sep 15 '14 at 12:45
  • isn't his question : how do I delete stuff that I installed from the terminal? because he thinks his screen is locked doubled because of one of the tools he installed. – Private Sep 15 '14 at 12:58
