Passwordless sudo
When executing commands as another user, then sudo is your friend.
Of course, one needs to authenticate correctly. But in day-to-day work it is tedious having to provide the password all the time.
The sudo-command can be made โ€œpasswordlessโ€ by using a tool called visudo.
Just type
1
sudo visudo
Copied!
and your favourite editor will open.
Add the following line at the very bottom (important!)
1
username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL
Copied!
That allows the user with name to execute commands as root-user.
