    Hello and Welcome!

    Your post indicates that you know the issues of logging in as root.
    That said, I won't give you the step-by-step. But I will say that a few Google searches will yield some results for you.

    Good luck on it.
    Jay

    If you are using GDM then edit /etc/pam.d/gdm3 file to enable GUI root login.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Press Alt+F2 and type this
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/pam.d/gdm3
    It will open gdm3 file in Gedit with root privileges.

    Put # sign before user root line
    Code:
    #auth   required               pam_succeed_if.so user != root quiet_success
    Save file and reboot machine.
