When I try to copy and paste a command from net I faced this warning in freya.

The command is adding a PPA. First I thought, the warning is with that particular web page. But the exact message is when I try to copy command and try to paste in terminal, I am getting warning message.



That means the command has sudo in it, when a command that requires root access is copy pasted, elementary os shows that warning(not an error) so if you are sure you know what the command does, hit paste anyway.

  • oh let me edit my post--I edited title forgot to change in body "error"-->warning

    You can disable this warning message in dconf editor or with the following command: gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings unsafe-paste-alert "false". But this is not recommended!
