Hello and Welcome

Having tried both E17 and the Cairo session I never had any password problem although in E17 I used Xterm . I don't quite understand because the Cairo Dock Session uses Compiz and is different than using the dock alone.

how to update my root password in cairo dock ? There should be no password change required when using the terminal in different desktop sessions. You might want to add some information about your user and administrative account settings.
