    Have you tried going into the Root Terminal like I mentioned in a previous post? That'll probably be the easiest way, the password that is asked is your user's password. Type that in, then follow the rest of the intructions.

    If nothing that we mentioned here works, it means someone already activated the root account and set a password. The only way you're going to get this working now is if you find out the password or re-install Kubuntu.

    Since you say you don't know who did this, or what the password is, I think a re-install is needed. This time, chill-out... Read everything that comes your way, if you have any questions ask here, but don't just say "I can't figure this out". Give us information of what you did and what the messages where. Don't forget "ONE STEP AT A TIME".

    nothing is wrong, only that you do not remember what you typed in the first time you tried
    to create root password. It seems that you actually created that password without knowing
    it.

    I really don't understand you. You ask for help but seems like you're not reading our answers at all, because you just go and do something completely different than what was explained.

    I kinda agree. I agree with the philosophy of helping newbies to get on their feet so the linux user base is increased, but this guy just doesn't seem to listen to anything you say!
