I'm embarrassed to have to ask , but I'm old and slow and don't know anything about windows, let alone linux - I am trying to install ubuntu 7.04 and I can't get Java installed (page 4 -install additional programs).

Now I am up to page 9 :

The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn

9 Install Automatix

Automatix2 comes with a graphical interface, but in order to install Automatix2 there are a few steps we have to do on the command line. Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal to open a command line window.
e
In the command line window, type in the following commands to install Automatix:

echo "deb http://www.getautomatix.com/apt feisty main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

You might have to provide your password. Afterwards, run.

OK.I type this line (well, paste it) and It does ask for password but I am unable to enter anything at all. Hit the keys and nothing will enter.
Please, can you tell me how I enter password when asked? (and what is run?)

yes, I'm really That bad. Sorry. Appreciate any help, thanks.
