Enable Ubuntu root account

Ubuntu disables root account by default. But you can get it back, here is how

Method 1:

– Open your Terminal
– Run the command

sudo passwd root

This command will ask you to enter & confirm your root password and your root account will be enabled.

Method 2:

– Open /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf and change the AllowRoot

AllowRoot = true

– Save the file, reboot or restart Gnome to activate your new setting
