When in vi command mode and I type period it just adds a new line with $ instead of repeating the last commands.

– Please Write here your help request, –

—I am doing a college project from a book for Linux. I have to take screen shots after I follow the directions. I was instructed to create a file by typing vi textfiles. It then instructed me to press i to enter insert mode and game me five lines to type hitting enter at the end of each including the last line. then hit esc to exit insert mode and go back into command mode. It then told me to press period in command mode and it should repeat the five lines. instead it just keeps giving me the $ and adding a new line when I do it. Does vi work different in Parrot?

  • Parrot version in use (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type cat /etc/os-release | grep VERSION):

  • Kernel version (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type uname -r):

  • Logs/Terminal output (use pastebin or similar services):

  • Screenshots:
