Question Hello


Hello, I'm french and I rarery write in english, so please, excuse my errors.

I went on this site because, I'm using Ubuntu. Feww weeks ago I update to 10.10 and I loose my Kdenlive programm. So I try to find how reinstall it. It's not easy, but I found a way that need to use a terminal.

The point, is that the terminal ask me "utilisateur@ubuntu:~" and when I give my name and my password, that doesn't qorks ! The answer is "Command introuvable" or "invalid command" My usual password doesn't works.

What can I do ?

Thank's

"utilisateur@ubuntu:~" is the command prompt. You don't have to type your username & password unless it asks for it. You can begin typing the commands you need to do whatever it is you need to do.

Hello,
Thank's for this advice. I was besides my shoes. Now, it's works. I've just a little problem, when ubuntu ask for my password, I want to give it, but the little white square is flashing and it happens... nothing. The letters doesn't appears on the terminal.

Good evening,

Good evening,
Almost all password prompts do that, so no one can look over your shoulder and see your password. Simply type it and press Enter, it will work (with the right password ).

Your english seems pretty good, too...
