    I just installed ubuntu 14.4 on its owne partision and using the file system that is installed by default I cant get to my root file system even if i use the sertch tool and type in only the /
    I installed thunar file manager and had no problem getting to root but can only open one instance of thunar from the dock.
    if I look through the software installed on my system and open thunar from there I can get a second instance of thunar to open so I can use drag and drop.
    I am new to the ubuntu desktop and have been using xubuntu what am i missing? how can I open two instances of thunar from the dock. and can i move the dock to the bottem of the screen insted of the left side of the desktop?

    You can't move the dock to the bottum. Ubuntu use Unity: https://unity.ubuntu.com/about/
    If you want to go INSIDE the /root folder than you must open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    sudo nautilus
    Or:
    Code:
    sudo nautilus /root
    (Normally you have to use gksudo but it is no longer installed.)

    I you just want to see the folders under / than you open nautilus (filemanager) and click in the left on "computer".
    In the Unity-bar (Launcher) you see this icon for nautilus:


    If you want to use Xubuntu than you can install the Xubuntu 14.04:

    Middle click on the appropriate Unity Launcher application icon to open a second instance of any application.
