When the prompt for the password pop's up in a window it doesn't disappear when the password is entered, how can I report it as a bug?

Asked by seatsea on 2010-11-02

When the prompt for the password pop's up in a window it doesn't disappear when the password is entered. This might concern people installing Ubuntu 10.4 along side Widows. If it dose I think it shod report it as a bug.

Please be sure your system is fully updated/upgraded with no pending packages....

Open a Terminal from the menu Applications->Accessories->Terminal

**Tip: right click with mouse on the top terminal windows title caption and select the menu item "Always on Top"
doing this you will force the terminal window to stay on top of the other windows and you will find very easy
to copy single row from this web page into the terminal...
Something more about using the terminal https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal

Then type or better copy and paste a row a time then press enter:
(Tip: select the single row to copy from this page then right click and select copy then click into the terminal window
and to quick paste click with middle button of mouse )

Copy and paste the rows below, copy and paste one row a time (see the **Tip) then press enter:

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get --fix-missing install
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get update

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

Hope this helps
