Python will not run, Root Terminal is non-existant
Hi... I just installed the new release of Ubuntu 13.04 and found that my python scripts will not run even after giver it permission. I have also noticed that Root Terminal and access to the "Comupter" folder where each device is listed such as /Files. Why does the Adminstrator not have access to root? Do I have to give myself access in the user definition app?
I had to re-install 12.10 to save my system. 13.04 currently does not allow the Administrator to have access to the root terminal. Consequently, many other operations that require this access is also lost. For example, when I started to view a movie (AVI) file, it tried to download some files. It failed to do so and the movie player box just froze. When I tried to download extra card files for Aisleriot Solitaire, it failed to find the catalog. Please, understand that I intend to use 12.10 until these bugs are resolved.
As far as Python is concerned, I found that only an in terminal applications may be run. In 12.10, it is simple thing to allow the PY file to run as an application and then it would work. This is lost in the current 13.04. I finally found the "Computer" folder and therefore access to the root was available there. I feel like I am a locked user in my own Administrator.
