I wanted to try and get LemonPOS set up.

I'm following instructions from this post which reads as follows:


October 20th, 2011 #6
First Cup of Ubuntu

Here is how I did it in Kubuntu:

Terminal command- sudo apt-get install mysql-client mysql-server

download Lemon POS from Software Repository

Terminal command- cd /usr/share/kde4/apps/lemon/

Terminal command- cat lemon_mysql.sql | mysql -u root -p

Reboot and open Squeeze. There will be a username and password on the screen that logs into the database. Leave that alone. I think this is where most people (I did) have issues with the program, because they think they are supposed to put their mysql password or the default lemonpos username and password there.

Where you are asked for a user name and password, use admin and linux.

I installed LemonPOS and Squeeze from the 18.04 repos.
I understand that the software is old and unmaintained, as the wiki links for it are gone and the domain for sale.


My underlying problem is with mySQL.
I don't remember being prompted for a password at install.

I have run the following to change my root mySQL password:

sudo mysql_secure_installation
I've run CD to get to /usr/share/kde4/apps/lemon

When I run:

cat lemon_mysql.sql | mysql -u root -pls
I get the return of:

mysql: [Warning] Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.
ERROR 1698 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'
When running the same as sudo:

sudo cat lemon_mysql.sql | mysql -u root -pls
I get the return:

mysql: [Warning] Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.
ERROR 1698 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'
Then, a Sudo password prompt, and a return of new line.

Running LemonPOS at this stage gives me a warning that it could not connect to database, and the logout function fails. So, I have to kill it with CTRL+ALT+ESCAPE.

I know what my mySQL root password is. But, I'm never prompted for it.

I know I'm missing something. I just don't know what.

Any clues?
