Ubuntu :: Run Scripts With Root Privileges Without Being Prompted For A Password?

Dec 22, 2010

I want to run to scripts with root privileges without being prompted for a password.
This is my sudoers

Code:
# /etc/sudoers
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.

# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.

OpenSUSE :: Don't Get Prompted For Root Password Anymore?

May 15, 2010

Something weird happened lately (more probably I messed something up). I don't get prompted for root password anymore, for example while installing updates or software. It's not like the system remembers the password and does everything without asking for credentials, it simply doesn't ask and states that it can't do anything because of lack of privileges.

I use GNOME and can run YaST and Software Installation - I get asked for root password when running these. I can't set privileges when doing thing's outside those, like for example installing updates through that update icon on the bottom toolbar, or trying to install something by clicking on *.rpm.What might be the cause of the problem is that I was trying out KDE lately, and because I didn't like it I uninstalled it's packages. System asked what to do with dependencies and I chose to save most of them, but I might have uninstalled a bit too much.

Ubuntu :: Run A Script That Needs Root Privileges Without Typing In The Password?

Mar 25, 2011

I'm trying to run a script that needs root privileges without typing in the password. I want to copy a file from my documents folder into /etc/X11 to overwrite my xorg.conf. I do this because I will have my computer switch from my monitors to my TV when I watch a movie. But I'd like to be able to make it a clickable icon so I don't have to type in cp /... /etc/...

This is my "script"

Code:

sudo cp /home/nertskull/Documents/xorg.conf_TV /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Then I read a lot of places that said to add this to the sudoers file (sudo visudo)

Code:

nertskull ALL = NOPASSWD: /home/nertskull/Documents/switch_TV.sh

I've done all that, and I still get asked for my password when I run that file.

nertskull ALL = ...
%nertskull ALL = ...
%users ALL = ...
%admin ALL = ...

I'm sure it's something simple I'm overlooking, but I've read 5 different threads on this, and I can't find anything they did that I'm not doing. Also, here is my sudoers file, because I know location within the file matters. But what I read said I should be putting my stuff at the end.

Code:

# /etc/sudoers
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.

Ubuntu Security :: Any Way To Change Password For Root Privileges?

Jul 10, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu for like a year now. Whenever I want root privileges I just type sudo and enter my User password. I wanna know if there's a way to change this, in a way that My User password is: "ABC" and the password needed to have root privileges is: "ABC123". I have no problem using the terminal, I actually prefer it to any GUI, it just seems easier to me.

Ubuntu :: Prompted For Username And Password At Startup?

Aug 30, 2010

not for the typical username and password that I use to log into my computer. It's actually prompting me, upon startup/reboot to have me insert my name and password, in what appears to be the command prompt. I am still a noob with Ubuntu and Linux in general, so I have no idea what I did to make this happen. It's not terrible and zomg if it doesn't get fixed I'll die, but it is slightly inconvenient to have to "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start" every time I reboot my computer. Anyone know what I have to do to fix this?I would also like to apologize if this has been covered in another topic, but I could not find anything

Ubuntu :: Screen Doesn't Always Dim When Prompted For Admin Password?

Dec 8, 2010

When I go to "Software Sources..." in the Software Center, the screen dims bringing my attention to the password prompt. I find this quite aesthetically pleasing and am immediately aware that I cannot continue until I enter my password. This is the only time that the screen dims in this fashion when asking for my admin password. Is this correct? If not (or maybe even if it is), should this be considered one for the papercut ninjas?

OpenSUSE :: Updates Not Installing - Get Prompted For Admin Password But Then Nothing Happens

Jan 19, 2011

I have fresh install of SuSe11.2 64x My software updater applet tells me there are about 50 or so updates required. I check all and then click install, get prompted for admin password but then nothing happens except the software updater window closes and if I hover my mouse over the applet it tells me it is updating.

however hours later and nothing appears to have happened. If I click the updater applet all the selected updates still appear in the update window. I have added all the standard repos and have network connectivity. I'm a bit baffled here - it worked perfectly fine on my last 11.2 on the same machine.

Networking :: Way To Connect To A Cifs Share, And Only Being Prompted For One Password?

Trying to figure out if there is a way to connect to a cifs share, and only being prompted for one password? ie using the following:

sudo mount -t cifs //goanna/neddy -o username=neddy,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 /mnt/neddy
prompts twice for a password (sudo & the share password). Is there anyway to "catch" the sudo password for the connect? (Long shot!

Ubuntu Security :: When Logged Into Every Day Account And Tried To Load The Program, It Prompted For Password?

Jul 8, 2010

I installed IPlist earlier today on my main/admin account (which I only use for installing programs. I don't use this account daily.) and everything was fine. When I logged into my every day account and tried to load the program, it prompted me for my password. When I entered it, I got this message:Quote:Failed to run /usr/sbin/ipblock start_gui as user root.The underlying authorization mechanism (sudo)t allow you to run this program. Contact the system administrator.Does this mean I am not able to use this program on this account, or is there a way around it? I'm new to Ubuntu so forgive me if I'm asking the obvious. I looked around and couldn't find an answer. I really don't want to use my admin account for daily activities, but I also really want to be able to use IPlist

OpenSUSE Network :: Prompted For A Password When Accessing A Windows 7 Share?

Feb 14, 2010

I have searched for days on this problem and no one seems to have the fix. Everyone else seems to go off on tangents.I have 3 computers. One runs XP pro, one runs Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and one runs openSUSE 11.2.The two windows machines can share files between each other with no problems.On suse I setup samba correctly. When I go to Computer -> Network on suse, I then go into Samba Shares. Then I see my workgroup name. I click to go in and I can see all 3 of my PC's listed here.When I click on my XP pro machine,am prompted for a user name and password. I put it in and I gain access perfectly.

When I click on my Windows 7 machine, I am prompted for a user name and password. I enter it in and it prompts me again for the user name and password. It will not let me in.I have changed all of the settings in 7, I have disabled the firewall, I have changed the security policies, I have changed the encryption strength.Simply Samba is nolaying well with Windows 7. I cannot believe that I am the only one with this problem

General :: "Login Incorrect" Error After Boot - No Password Prompted

May 17, 2011

I have built a linux image based on kernel 2.6.32.10. The image boots up fine & at the login prompt when I enter the login Id - the
system doesnt prompt for password - instead throws an error message "Login incorrect".

mygway login: admin
Login incorrect
login: root
Login incorrect

From all the search I did, I narrowed this down to be a pam configuration issue. I checked that the /etc/securetty has an entry "/dev/ttyS0" to allow root to logon via serial console - so I ruled out this file to be a cause for that error. Few files that I am not entirely sure are as below:

1) /etc/pam.d/login
sudo cat login
#%PAM-1.0

Ubuntu :: Way To Grant 'root' Privileges To User Account?

Jan 2, 2010

Is there a way to grant 'root' privileges to my user account? My account name ... I'll call it 'masterskop' as it is my forum name here, but not on my computer.Would it look like this in the sudoers' file?My purpose is to get access to all the folders and files in the 'File System'. The root and lost+found folders have 'Xs' on them...No access! And for example, under properties of the 'var' folder it states that 'you are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions.' How can I get access to all of it everytime I login as the main user of my computer? I do not have anyone else using this computer.I did edit this file and used my real user name ... logged out and logged back in and still I do not have access/edit these folders and files.

Debian :: How To Sign In Or Install For Root Privileges

Feb 28, 2015

I used Zorin, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu. Even though Kubuntu was my favorite because of the KDE platform, it still didn't have what I was looking for. With Debian, the KDE platform works great, it uses KDM instead of LightDM, (you can do more with that), and the choices of software for setting it up as a server is great. The problem I having right now is with the root privileges. With the other Debian based systems I used, root privileges was not a problem. When I signed in, it was with my user name and my root password.

Every time I did updates or installed software, it ask me for authentication which is my root password. And if I had to use su or sudo commands in the terminal it ask for my password. I had no problem with that. I'm just as big with security as any Unix based system users. And Linux has that. That's one of the big reasons I left Microsoft Windows for Linux. There was times when I had to have full root privileges for just a short time, and my favorite command was sudo nautilus. This was perfect.

For example, sometimes I had to get in to the opt folder for a brief moment to past a web page in it. Opt is a root folder. It can be opened with out a root privilege, but you just can't past files to it. Sudo nautilus was perfect for this because it is a temporary root privilege. Close the terminal and the root privilege session ends. This is great. You don't want root privileges all the time you're log in. That can be dangerous because it's a high security risk.

With Debian, I have not been able to get any root privileges. And without root privileges, I can't load much needed software, can't access my second hard drive, matter of fact, the second hard drive doesn't even show up. I can't really do much of anything. Is there something I can do when I am installing Debian to fix this or how do I get the root privileges I need?
