Re: [trinity-users] For the records: Deepin Linux + TDE

How to be root in Ubuntu:

As user, open shell and do >> sudo passwd root. Enter sudo password
and it will walk you through creating root password. This is how it worked
up to 13.04 in my experience...I'm assuming Ubuntu has kept permissions
the same in Trusty.

In Ubuntu the root account exists, but by default root has no password until
you create one and thereby activate the root account.

To make kdm/tdm display root accout for login, you probably will have to edit
/etc/trinity/kdm/kdmrc to say either #AllowRootLogin=false (comment the line
out) or AllowRootLogin=true. In my kdmrc this is line number 252.
