    Re: how to gain root access

    Are you asking how to temporarily elevate to root to run a program, or how to actually enable a root account?

    You should see this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RootSudo

    And heed the warnings on it.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
