    issues with new install/winehq/password

    hi everyone new to Ubuntu, just about ready to pull me eyeballs out
    downloaded 18.04 bionic to disc, went for clean install with no issues downloaded wine and winetricks without any issues except esetnod32 would not open, tried the 32 and 64 bit downloads neither worked,so went back to the beginning and uninstalled wine and winetriks
    then found winehq and am stuck trying to use command prompt/ /terminal to reinstall although i used these yesterday
    the problem is the password terminal/cp is asking for,
    i am using the word i use to sign into Ubuntu but terminal/cp will not accept it
    any help would be much appreciated

    What do you mean not accept?
    Is it saying wrong or incorrect password, or something else?

    i am trying to copy in the 32bit architecture
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
    then it says
    [sudo[ password for steve
    and i can't enter a password
    i made it passed this point once and password was not accepted, can't remember exactly what it said

    The password field is blank and invisible, so you need to type it as best you remember it and hit enter.
    (And hope you typed it right)

    Aside from your password problem, you no longer need to add the i386 architecture. 64-bit systems support it by default. Verify with this command:
    Code:
    dmn@Sydney-VM:~$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
    i386
    You should get i386 as above.

    If the password you believe you are typing into the terminal is the same as your login password, and your login password is working, then you must be making an error when typing it into the terminal (assuming you are logged into the administrator account). Because you get no visible feedback from the terminal when you type your password, it is easy to make a mistake. We've all done it. Check that you haven't accidentally activated caps lock.

    Here's a way of making sure that you are putting the correct password into the terminal. Open a text editor, and type out your password, and double-check that you have typed it correctly. Highlight the typed password and press crtl-c to copy it into the clipboard buffer. Now, in the terminal, type your sudo command. When the sudo password prompt appears, simply press ctrl-shift-v to paste your password into the terminal. Nothing will appear to happen, but your password has been pasted. Now press enter.

    The only way I know to get anything like that is to type the word "password" into the terminal. Is that what you did? That's not what you want to do.

    Read my suggestion again, and follow it very carefully.

    Re: issues with new install/winehq/password

    nope just says command not found
    ie
    dmn@Sydney-VM:~$: command not found
    'my computers name' ~$ i386
    hope this helps narrow it down
    i read somewhere (winehq site i think) earlier it was only 19 that had it installed, i have 18.04 and need the i386 so i'm told, that's where this whole sorry saga began, i deleted wine and wine tricks to start afresh and have been stuck ever since
    the password being the major issue the rest i can probably figure out only have 24hrs on ubuntu
