    I'm probably making a very basic error but I need help. I'm trying to run CS3 Clean which I downloaded from the Adobe website. This runs in Terminal which I have never used before. Terminal asks me for a password (which I assume is my normal admin password) but I cannot input any text. Am not quite sure what to do.

    Any help appreciated.

    When you're asked for your password have you tried just typing it in? You don't get the asterisk or cursor fill in.

    Are you actually unable to enter the password?
    Simply try entering it followed by "enter". Terminal does not show, how many characters you typed. The cursor doesn't move when you type your password.
