I guess this should be a simple thing for ubuntu users out there. I have two questions.
Whenever I need to run some command that requires permission from root, I run as sudo followed by that command. It would be nice if that does not prompt for password (but I should still be issuing a sudo to make sure that I know what I am doing). How to do this?
Every time I start my system, I go to terminal and start my VPN using sudo vpnc. This is almost everytime! How to automate this to a startup script?
In 10.04 I see that in the Network Manager (v0.8) I have a flag on the VPN Configuration screen (System > Preference > Network Connections , click the VPN tab, select the connection and "Edit") "Connect Automatically" I believe that it fires up the selected connection at login.
