    Admin rights


    During set up there was no question about admin password or root account.
    How do I set this up.
    I try to get into the print settings, admin required, and a place for a user name password. It does not like anything.

    Can I set an admin account?
    How?

    Well I discovered the root terminal session... helps
    I dug out, from my brain and google, the chmod command.

    I have been able to set all my drives so group (user) can access rw.

    I wish there were a way to get the /root to login with the GUI instead of the terminal use only. It would make things easier.

    OK
    I figured it out.
    I went into Kuser and added the desktop group to user root and now I can choose to log in to it from the startup/login screen. COOL

    Now I have root priveleges with a GUI interface.
