The terminal (Konsole) hangs when I want to install additional software.
user@host:~$ kdesudo apt-get install xterm Reading package lists... Building dependency tree... Reading state information... The following extra packages will be installed: xbitmaps Suggested packages: xfonts-cyrillic The following NEW packages will be installed: xbitmaps xterm 0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 642 kB of archives. After this operation, 1,879 kB of additional disk space will be used.
The question " Do you want to continue? [Y/n]" is not showing and the terminal seems to hang.
I tried to force the installation with “apt-get -y” but this option is not recognized.
user@host:~$ kdesudo apt-get -y install xterm kdesudo: Unknown option 'y'. kdesudo: Use --help to get a list of available command line options. user@host:~$
Actually I wanted to replace the KDE-desktop with LXDE because KDE consumes to much system-resources. Tor-browser hangs when I have more then three tabs open and the system is responding slow on this computer. Also the always ‘jumping icons’ beneath the mouse-pointer I do not like in KDE.
So I tried to install LXDE and there the problem with the hanging terminal started.
First I thought that de Konsole causes the hang, so I tried to install the lighter xterm as terminal.
How can I resolve the problem with the hanging terminal (Konsole) when installing software?
Any help is much appreciated.
If you need more information, please let me know.
Thanx in advance,
