Tips and tricks

I recently found, though, a dangerous area for the average user.

I would have thought this was a bad idea - if only because you probably would lose track of whether you were ‘in’ sudo or not… which can lead to permissions problems at the very least! I actually use su-c_wrapper to distinguish between ‘normal’ sudo and ‘really pay attention’ sudo type commands.

It doesn’t take long to ‘hard-wire’ the sudo password into your brain, so the effort this ‘saves’ is pretty minimal too. Not to mention what a mistyped entry in the config file will do!

Bad idea - better to make your sudo password really easy if it bothers you!!

Yes :trophy:
My password is 123. I’m not trying to keep my laptop secure from other humans, but just want to give myself some thought before running command with sudo :grin:
