  1. Dear Ravi

    I need your help…

    I am new user of Linux.

    I installed Q4OS, every time I need to update the software, it asks me to put the password for (Authentication) to be able to update the software.

    at the top of the screen, it is saying: policykit1-KDE agent

    kindly can you please tell me how to stop this every time I need to update the password.

    my kindest regards

    • That is for security to prevent unauthorized access to your system. If you disable password checking or allow password-less access to your system, anybody will be able to install or upgrade software on your system. You will not be able to control what they install.

  2. In Section 1, the fifth point is “Installation of latest Virtual box on Linux”. Not “Installation of CentOS on Virtual box”. Please change the topic on this page.
