I recently created an additional user account on my PC, and I’ve noticed that there is now an extra step when I need to obtain sudo authentication. This additional step only applies to pamac; pacman does not require it. Here is the prompt I receive:
==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.manjaro.pamac.commit ====

The process itself is not problematic, but I would prefer to skip this step if possible and set a default user. I have searched through the man pages without success. It’s possible that I may have overlooked something, so if anyone knows a method to achieve this, I would greatly appreciate the information!
It was just speculation on my part, i have not verified it. But the way the CLI password asking feature came into manjaro was someone on reddit made a patch for it, and it was included in manjaro. So when someone external makes a patch, there is more possibility of unforeseen consequences.
Of course it might be intentional, hopefully not. But to answer that you need an actual developer to chime in.
