Operating Systems OS X (Apple) How to prompt for login on OSX when starting Terminal Post 302482057 by joeyg on Monday 20th of December 2010 01:48:22 PM

Question a little confused by your request

mbpro -- does that mean you have a MacBook Pro computer?
When you see the 'process completed', this normally indicates that the requested program has completed. Thus, you may have to close the application window and re-initiate the program.

What terminal application are you running? (This may be obvious after you answer the first question.)
