Thread: Root Login
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
I've found out that Ubuntu does not allow Administrator [root] login from GNOME login screen. Can it be enabled any way so that Ubuntu allows me to login as root from the main GNOME Login Screen?
Ubuntu is Debian based and Debian dose not permit root login on any GUI.
it is unwise to login as root .

But if you want to do it, here is how :

If you can't use GUI you might as well stay on your own account and prefix commmands in the terminal with "sudo" or "gksudo" for GUI applications. For example, the command "gksudo nautilus" will start file browser (nautilus) under root permissions.

Go to 'System>Administration>Login Window', enter your password and click on the 'Security' tab. Check the box that reads "Allow local system administrator login".
Close the window and then go to, 'System>Administration>Users and Groups'. Double-click on 'root', choose "Set password by hand", and then enter your root password.
Now you can login as root!
