Team Treehouse password isn't working in the Team Treehouse console when prompted for it using sudo apt-get install git.

I'm in the course Working With Git, at the section where you install git in the Team Treehouse web console using the command "sudo apt-get install git". Entering this command prompts you to enter your Team Treehouse account password, which I do with no success. It tells me sorry, try again. I've logged out and logged back in to verify that I know my password. I can't make it work no matter how I try.

Hey Christopher,

It's not you personal Team Treehouse password the command is looking for...

When you launch the Treehouse Console, if you look at the top, it tells you what user you are signed in as and what the default password is... that's the password you need to use. (don't forget the spaces).

Keep coding! :dizzy:

Dude, you're awesome. Thank you! I need to slow down and read what's in front of me.
