Thread: How do you log in as "root"?
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
If it's kde4 you need to do this:
STEP 1. editor: /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc
STEP 2. click the find button, enter "AllowRootLogin"
STEP 3. change the value to "true"
STEP 4. save, logout, log back in as ROOT!
logging in as root is not a good idea, it's best to just use the terminal when the need arises. This will reduce the risks of accidentally doing something bad.
