    Nope. Passwords are an inherient and hardcoded security feature of Linux. So you have to have one and use it. You can though shut off lockscreen and set the computer to auto login, but everything else will require your password.

    Don't be too hard on yourself. It does get easier with practice.

    I'm pretty sure there was a command that did this.. sudo passwd -s or something. I will look into it a bit more and report back.

    Re: tired of typing password

    On a good day, I only type my password once.
    At login.

    Edit: What are you doing that requires constant authentication?

    If you're having to keep entering your password in the terminal, get as much done at once . sudo has something like a fifteen minutes window before it times out.
    Install synaptic if you want to install a boatload of apps at once, much easier to pick,mark and install than the software center.
    I'm sure there are other things you can do to limit the number of times you have to enter your password.

    Disabling screen lock (brightness and lock app) certainly saves irritation if your environment doesn't require its use.
