comment Software Center prompts password of another user
I've added the group "sudo" to the users through pam_groups: *;*;%administrators;Al0000-2400;sudo so that the groups now show as: users sudo administrators. But the software center still wants the password for a local user. So your solution doesn't seem to work.

The groups are defined on the LDAP server. I can't really change that. Unless there is a way to say that all adminstrators are also in the sudo group locally.

comment How to disable PIN on SIM card
In 11.10 due to a bug it did ask for a pin if you had carried out the steps you have described. It was a known bug. Not sure how it is now, as I've disabled the PIN on the SIM card.

comment Cannot SSHFS mount user home directory
@chriss I suppose I could convert ecryptfs to a truecrypt volume and then krb5p NFS should work, but that would be a very long and bumpy road (resize partitions, transfer data, key management, etc).

@chriss actually the main reason is this: serverfault.com/questions/200759/…

@chriss for security reasons. It would be very difficult to satisfy the same requirements with NFS.

comment Synchronize SSHFS mount with local filesystem
@LuisAlvarado, sorry I have probably caused some confusion. The link ive posted Is not answering the question, but it brings one to a setup in which you mount a remote filesystem at login. My point was that when somebody sets that up on a mobile workstation such as a laptop it desirable to somehow cache that filesystem locally. And this is what I am trying to achieve and this is what the question is about. So it will be useful to anybody who set up the system as described on that link, but has a laptop that is not always online.

@LuisAlvarado unfortunately I haven't solved that yet.

comment Synchronize SSHFS mount with local filesystem
@LuisAlvarado my setup is described here: help.ubuntu.com/community/SingleSignOn#Shared_Files. It is not very uncommon that people have laptops and would like to sync those mounts for when they are on the move. Somebody has also market it as a favourite. All of this kinda proves you wrong.

That looks promising, but how do I determine the path of the modem? After all it is inbuilt and I cannot unplug it.

comment How to access windows folder (that installed on virtualbox) via Ubuntu?
As far as i know, you can't designate guest directories as shared folder. You can only do that with host directories.

comment Lost phone : is Ubuntu One login linked to SIM card?
Is the SIM PIN protected? If not your google account can still compromised using wifi.

comment How to disable PIN on SIM card
@Takkat I am not informing about a bug. I know the bug exists and I know that it is known and I know that it was apparently fixed. However it's fixed for me. So I need some help about getting to to work for me. And also as I've said, id rather disable the PIN on the SIM rather than simply saving it in NetworkManager. A bug report is a description of something that does not behave as it is supposed to. Not knowing how to disable the PIN or not knowing how to work around an existing and confirmed bug is clearly something else!

@Huckle I suppose that would be NetworkManager.

comment “AND Operator” in PAM
You answer works as far as my question is concerned. But for some reason ssh bypasses PAM when a kerberos ticket is presented and therefore this brick does not solve the problem that I was trying to solve. But that not the fault of your answer, so I have accepted it.

comment “AND Operator” in PAM
Ok I think it is because pam is bypassed by sshd when a kerberos ticket is delegated.
