    1. Root is not supported in the traditional sense on Ubuntu. While you can enable the root account, it is more recommended that you use the 'sudo' command to run root scripts. For instance: sudo gedit /etc/hosts

    If you need to, you can: sudo su -

    2. Why use putty? You've got ssh at the command line. If you really want putty, however, you can install it in Synaptic or with the following command: sudo apt-get install putty

    You don't need to login as root. Just open terminal and type:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install putty

    Use this command:

    whereis putty


    Most likely it is in your $PATH variable so to launch it:


    putty

    He either likes really likes putty, or needs it to accomplish his counter strike thing. Obviously it does things other ssh+xterm clients don't.

    Doesn't make me run out and apt-get install putty, but hey, to each his own.
