OK, I'd like to stop my system from asking for the root password whenever I try
to run apps or elevate privaliges.
(I realise that this is normal and how things "should" be done,
however I've got really bad RSI and every little bit helps).
I also understand the security implications this involves too.
I've asked something similar previously =
And was asked to edit the sudoers file using visudo and alter
the line in question to =
- Code: Select all
%admin ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
However even though I've done this
(And I'm pretty sure it was done properly - I went in and checked the
file running Gedit as root. However I only viewed the file I didn't edit it using Gedit).
At the moment I still get the request come up if I do any of the following -
I run Gparted.
I run a terminal session (and then ask for a root session).
I run GUFW.
Run Ubuntu software centre.
Is there anything I've done incorrectly, or anything else that I need to do ?
Useful information =
OS = Ubuntu 12.04
DE = KDE
TIA for any help or advice.
