Is there a difference in syntax between the server and desktop ubuntu 12.04 distro? If so could I get help rewriting this line to be valid for the desktop env?

user1 ant =(user1) NOPASSWD: ~/progs/tool/

the script should be executable from an ant target initiated by user1...

No, there is no syntax difference.

Edit with sudo visudo and you'll get some syntax checking.
