Terminal password difficulty
#1
Hello!

So I was trying to add megapixels to my postmarket OS pinephone, and ran into an issue.

Upon running sudo add apk megapixels, it asks for the password.  
When I enter the password nothing appears in the terminal, (Keyboard does register presses) and it registers as a bad attempt.

Am I missing something here?

keyboard events never have visual feedback in the terminal for password inputs on linux to make passwords less guessable

if the password didnt work then it was entered incorrectly

Awesome, thank you!!!
