Using terminal command sudo apt-get "program" install to install software
Have just installed Mint 14.1 as a change from KDE 13. Only been working with Linux Mint a month or so. KDE had a root terminal I could log into and use - Mint 14.1 doesn't seem to have one. And everytime I type command "sudo apt-get "name of software" install" I get error message that I need a sudo password and it won't take my login pw - in fact, it won't let me even type anything. How to I get root privileges in Mint 14.1? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. By the way, Linux Mint documentation stinks.
