octopi and password input
« on: 16. June 2015, 10:55:40 »
Hi,

one question: How can I modify octopi settings, that this piece of software memorise password input? After installing software and closing octopi it is okay, that a new start and action of octopi needs new password input. But it is an exorbitant behavior of security, that every step of installation or removing software must be confirmed with password input, while I don't close octopi between installation steps.

Kind regards,
  Holger

You can install more then one package with one "confirmation", anyway I think that it's not possible to memorize the password.
Octopi utilize "pacman" and he wants a password every time.

Hi,

thanks for your answer. I know that I can install and remove a lot of packages in one step. But sometimes I notice "Ah, I need also package xyz" and then I start a further installation.

The YaST module for softwaremanagement is a frontend to zypper, it also requieres password input. But when closing YaST and restarting it during 10 minutes after closing, no further password input is required.

Kind regards,

you can also do
Code: [Select]
sudo suand install from the terminal but it also requires that you leave the window open... ;) :)
