I don't want ubuntu ask me my password each time i run a command with sudo.

To disable password prompt for sudo, run

sudo -s
set VISUAL=vi
visudo

Now add

YOUR_USER_NAME ALL=NOPASSWD:ALL

Example

[email protected]:~$ sudo cat /etc/sudoers
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of
# directly modifying this file.
#
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
#
Defaults	env_reset
Defaults	mail_badpass
Defaults	secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"

# Host alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# User privilege specification
root	ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Allow members of group sudo to execute any command
%sudo	ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives:

Now close terminal, start another terminal, run command with sudo, it won't ask you password.

For security reason, only do this for HOME computers where no one will mess up your PC.
