How to get rid of passwords in Ubuntu

This post is useful for people TIRED to write the same DAMN PASSWORD into their ubuntu box.

apt-get install libpam-gnome-keyring

(it can be unnecessary on recent ubuntus)

Create a file named



auth optional pam_keyring.so try_first_pass
session optional pam_keyring.so



adding this line at the bottom of the file:

@include common-pamkeyring

and please COMMENT OUT those lines:

# auth optional pam_gnome_keyring.so
# session optional pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start

Create, if doesn't exist, the "wheel" group, editing /etc/group, and add your user to it

vi /etc/groups

add this in


using "visudo":

yourusername ALL = NOPASSWD: ALL

add those things in


auth sufficient pam_rootok.so
auth required pam_wheel.so
auth sufficient pam_wheel.so trust

enable this in your


# Uncomment this if you want wheel members to be able to
# su without a password.
auth sufficient pam_wheel.so trust



as here:

<config version="0.1">
        <match user="root|YOUR_USER_HERE">
               <return result="yes"/>
        <define_admin_auth group="admin|wheel"/>

restart the whole X damn thing
