    Welcome to the forums!

    Are you trying to login as root under KDE?

    If I'm not mistaken, that's disabled under KDE by default. If you are saying you can't su to root in a terminal, that's different.

    Let us know which it is.

    My root was not disabled by default last time I used kde, I had to take it off through the control panel.

    Hmm... I'm not sure if it's all distros or just some of them but I remember reading somewhere (SUSE Forums, maybe) that root logins are not allowed in the latest KDM by default. You can edit the "kdmrc" file to make it work though, by setting the "AllowRootLogin" line to "true".

    It's been a while, so I'm not sure about this.

    Edit: Here's another post about it that might explain it better:

    Of course, I'm still not sure this is the problem that muertops2 is experiencing...

    Maybe one of the supermods will move this thread as it doesn't belong in the Linux Forums Site News forum.
