This question already has an answer here:
I stopped using Ubuntu for a while (since 12.10) and recently came back to it. From what I remember, it used to only ask for the root password once for a terminal session (for sudo commands). Now it asks me everytime I want to sudo something. Is there a way to fix this? or is this intentional?
The same thing happens with git. I have enter my credentials everytime I want to commit. I know my friends on on mac don't need to do this. Are the two issues related?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
