use virt-manager without root password on debian 9

After installing virt-manager on debian 9 you’ll notice that every time you open it it will ask for your root password.
In order to avoid that you’ll just need to add your user to the libvirt group:

sudo usermod -aG libvirt dferreira

Logout and login again. You can now open virt-manager without your root password.
