This question already has an answer here:

I want to disable the prompt for a password when installing a software and when launching a vpn client (torGard).

How can disable this?

What I've done:
in terminal >

sudo visudo /etc/sudoers/

1st I've changed


then ctrl + O (wich might be were I am wrong?)

It didn't do much so I've also changed the setting for %sudo and %root but I am still prompt for those passwords. Any thing I would have missed?

    I assume you meant to spell torGuard and not torGard? This isn't an AskUbuntu question but you can go to their website: torguard.net and on-line chat tech support can walk you through their sign-on process. If you want to know how to setup Ubuntu with no User Password, post a different question. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Oct 15 '16 at 19:05
  • account control is managed by the OS sir not the software developper. I can sing -in just fine. Ubuntu is prompting for the password. – b_siC Nov 12 '16 at 13:12

While logged on as yourself ( myusername ) issue this

sudo visudo

you will get a pwd prompt ... then put this new line at file bottom


of course replace myusername with your actual value ... save with a ctrl-x ... enter a Y to confirm

enjoy and welcome to the world of linux
