    It is invisible typing in, you won't see any sign you're typing it in. Just type in as normal and press enter

    When accessing sudo, you use your own account password. To change it (you're own password), drop on your terminal and issue the command below:

    Code:
    sudo passwd your_username
    and input your current password followed by your new password and confirmation password.
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    You would only need to neter the root password if you were issuing the su command

    Alternatively you can always change your password in the terminal with
    Code:
    passwd
    No need to be root or use sudo or anything special. I mean, why make it more complicated than it is?
