Sudo with no password promt on Linux
April 4, 2013
I am tired to type each time password when I type sudo command. And you? It is possible to use sudo with no password in Ubuntu and any other Linux systems. So, do you want to use sudo without password prompt?
To disable password prompt in Linux you need to follow next steps.
Create a group for users who will be using sudo without password prompt. In Ubuntu this group already exists
sudo groupadd sudo
Add your username to this group
sudo usermod -a -G sudo username
where username - name of your user in system
Edit /etc/sudoers file
sudo nano /etc/sudoers
Find a string bellow in this file
%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
and change it to this
%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
That's all. Now you can use sudo with no password
