  1. Hello, i recently installed linux, then used the terminal for some commands to install apps, but then as i closed the terminal, the terminal asks me to connect to my ssh server or hostname. I tried a lot of SSH connetions but they all got refused. At first in my terminal my username was ghulamabbassafdarzada@penguin, now that SSh does not work. How can i fix that and be able to use my terminal again?
