    Well, this is what I ended up doing to get root gui login, don't know if I was supposed to do it this way but it was the only way that worked...

    SU \ password...

    kate /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc

    Then went all the way down to allow root login

    allow root login=false <change to true

    This worked for me anyhow. Else it said I had no permission.

    Hi glussier,

    While mostly true, there was only one way for this to work... as you posted the


    And others have posted the same or on the internet something similar ....

    kdesu kate /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc

    But neither work and give me permission denied and command not found. So I simply used

    kate /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc

    That is the only thing that would work.

    Some point to the opt dir which I don't have anything in, it's empty and I enabled show hidden files so that didn't work either.

    Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the help and such but my system is a bit off it seems and most basic commands haven't worked without a tweak or two. Well, at least it's working, that's what I wanted, right?

    Thanks again,
