How to get rid of passwords and idiot requests in Ubuntu

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

Stupid passwords for everything


apt-get install libpam-gnome-keyring

(i's not required on recent ubuntus)

Create a file named



auth optional try_first_pass
session optional



adding this line at the bottom of the file:

@include common-pamkeyring

and please COMMENT OUT those lines:

# auth optional
# session optional auto_start

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

vi /etc/group

add this in


using "visudo":

yourusername ALL = NOPASSWD: ALL

add those things in


auth sufficient
auth required
auth sufficient trust

enable this in your


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

The Incredible Idiocy: PolicyKit

As stated in the man page, just edit


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


Other stupid things in Ubuntu

Close this terminal?

Terminal asking "Close this terminal? There is still a process running in this terminal. Closing the terminal will kill it". This is STUPID, STUPID, STUPID..

open gconf-editor -> Apps -> gnome-terminal -> global -> untick confirm_window_close

60 seconds delay on shutdown

Another STUPID thing.
