I have this problem:

enter image description here

Is this a bug? Is this something I can avoid now while a patch comes to Helm?

  • It's not a bug. When you work through TRAMP with Helm and when a password is required, helm-find-files asks for your password and after you enter the password, you can resume your file browsing session normally without having to exit and invoke Helm again.

  • So... it is not a bug that Helm displays my password?

  • Really? I thought that you wanted to create a file on a remote server and was asked for a password. I think the cursor is accidentally moved to the Helm buffer. If your cursor remains in the minibuffer, entering password should not appear in the Helm buffer. Could you try it again?

    How do you get to the password prompt? With ssh:name@host"? Anyway, if this is reproducible in ~/emacs-helm.sh`, you should report the issue to Helm maintainer, with a reproducible steps and your Emacs version.

It was fixed in the commit 9f64244. You could try again without any error now. The error is not related to the interaction between Tramp and Helm but AngeFTP and Helm.
