I am stuck, When in Terminal, unable to enter a password
#1
Hi,
    The following is on a Pinephone with Manjaro
I get into Terminal and start entering,
I hit the enter icon,
It then ask's for a password.

At the point - no matter what keys are tried, nothing appears on the screen

The only password I have so far is for the lockscreen,
which I changed not long after getting the phone.

I would think it is something basic. 
For background, I use Ubuntu on a laptop

Perhaps try typing "linux" as the password, it might not display anything if its set not to echo the password (ie shows stars for each character input).

I think KDE community edition is based on Manjaro, and might be set up that way (I'm mainly using the openSUSE phosh/ plasma versions and don't have my phone to hand to check right now, sorry

The lockscreen password (PIN) is the user password - use the same digits again.

Hi slate and dukla2000,
Thank you for your replies.
It helped.

It look like when in Terminal and entering the password.
The cursor does not move along the line,
remaining in the same place, with no stars to indicate characters entered.
