I have returned to the fold! Installed Ubuntu a couple of years ago alongside Win XP but had all sorts of problems. Stuck with Win 7 since then but recently installed pclinuxos. Not impressed. So here I am again and am amazed at the changes that have happened apart from....
I have been trying to use a terminal and after issuing the first command the keyboard freezes and I can't enter anything else. Quite a problem when there's a box asking for your password.
Can anyone help.
PS I am using Ubuntu 12.10 with all updates installed on an Acer 64 PS6T motherboard.:)

If, on the other hand, you were using gksu or gksudo and a box outside the terminal popped up and wanted your password, then I don't know why you couldn't type in there.
