I just installed Lubuntu 12.10 on a dumpster laptop that had a corrupted installation of XP. I have used Ubuntu before, but not for a few years.

I am getting annoyed at how often is asks for my password. I don't mind upon logon and when the screen blanks, but every time I fiddle with wireless, send an error report or install a program or update is a bit much. I understand that it is all in the name of security and I don't care. I will sign a virtual hold harmless agreement with the internet if I can make this stop.

Can anyone help me out with this?
