My main question was, is it possible/easy to set one password to log on and another one to use with sudo? And secondly, if so, is it a good idea?Yes it's possible. Install Ubuntu with default user (choose an "admin" type name) [user A], set a password. Login. Create a new user [user B] with (encrypted home directory). User B, by default has no sudo rights. use this for normal use Use User A for administrative tasks.
