Ubuntu: Removing required password to used Terminator terminal package


Every time I open a Terminator terminal window it prompts me for a password to perform administrative tasks. Is there a config file I can edit to prevent it from doing this? I know from having used the default Ubuntu terminal the damage I can cause from the terminal and I don't need the reminder each time and to be forced to type my password.


This is bad, but if you want to do it go to a terminal and..

sudo visudo  

Add this where username is your username. Then save/exit.

username ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/share/terminator  


It sounds like you are opening a terminal with admin rights, instead of a standard terminal. You should only use this if you need to perform tasks that require this level of privilige, e.g. installing or updating software.

If you can't find the regular terminal from the menu, then pressing CTRL + ALT + T will give you a terminal with your normal user priviliges without asking for your password.


Sorry to dig up an old question.

In my case, this turned out to be due to an errant sudo command being run from my ~/.bashrc. Removing the sudo command did the trick :)
