It’s not advised to run apps with sudo.

I created a script for vim that will let me save with sudo, so I just need the password when saving. I would recommend looking for a similar solution.

You are right in general but not for the case of OP. It is strongly advised to edit the sudoers file with visudo only so that you can not lock yourself out accidently when messing up the config file. See visudo(8).

sorry, I misread and thought he was asking trying to run “visual studio” or something lol

I just enable curses, its funny, distracts you from the timeout and makes you relax/check the caps lock etc instead of getting frustrated.

Why do you want to disable the password-input-timeout?
