Hey there! I am completely new to the realms of Linuxia and I need some advice for the start
I have installed the latest Ubuntu on a 16 gb USB stick (installed like on a harddrive, not live mode!) and plan to use this as alternative to my Windows that suffers from bluescreenitis. However I have some Problems:
1. I am annoyed by repetitively having to enter my password when changing things on the system. After logging in I want to be able to do what I want without having to reenter my password. How can I configure this?
2. The Ubuntu, run from USB-Stick used as Live CD ran quite smoothly, but I couldnt get it persistent and didnt want do live with the limitations of the live mode. So I installed Ubuntu directly on the Stick. It does what want, but I have certain performance Problems. Eg, when i type in a URL it sometime takes seconds to display what I have typed. Or the menues pop up delayed. Not so nice. Is there a way to fix it? My PC is a Turion 64 Laptop with 2 gb ram, so hardwarewise it shouldn't be a problem. No fancy effects activated.
3. I activated this encryption option on installation, but now I am not so sure if I need it. Is there a way to deactivate it?
Kudos in advance for any help!
