Dots when you type your password in an application like Synaptic, but no feedback at all when you type your password in the terminal. Let's improve that:
Navigate to the line that says:
Supplement it with ,pwfeedback by making it look like this:
Ctrl x to close and save.
Test, for example by updating your system:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Should be a starry experience now.
Edit: another way to achieve this, is by executing this oneliner in the terminal:
echo -e "Defaults\tpwfeedback" | sudo tee -a /etc/sudoers.d/0pwfeedback
Even easier, because you can simply copy/paste it into the terminal. No typing required. Fire and forget.
