I want a completely passwordless ubuntu

Asked by ndv

I use karmic beta at the moment, my machine is not networked, so I tried to set it up without passwords, but the task seems impossible. I have set autologin, but keyring bugs me with password chat, policykits annoys me all the time and when I resume the PC there is not wellcome a login prompt.
I have posted some questions in forums, but I found only people suggesting me that passwords are necessary, that I shouldn't that way or even to change distribution or adopt windows XP (I'll never do, but indeed windows xp doesn't ask for password every 5 minutes).
My question is: "is there a way to configure a standalone passwordless ubuntu box? and if is possible how can I do it?"

Steps already completed:

edited sudoers and added my user with NOPASSWD: ALL option
removed "ask for password" flag from screen saver applet
configured autologon
under "user and groups" I have enabled all the permission (mount disks, etc.)

Still can't do:
remove keyring feature, I have (and I want) no password to remember
wakeup from standby still ask for password tried to uncheck gconf-editor
but no joy at the moment.

for the encryption keyring, I would run seahorse, delete all your passwords. Reboot, and then when it asks for a password, make sure to enter no password, and then say yes to unsafe storage.

Can you help with this problem?
