    Logging in as root, but using USB

    I am using Lunbuntu on a USB.

    I do not login.

    So how can I login as root.

    For example, I tried to use fsck and received a message that I need to login as root.

    fsck, FAT, Lubuntu, USB

    I would like to use fsck to repair the FAT file on a USB that also contains the Lubuntu 12.10 OS (not yet working). I believe that the FAT needs a repair before I can use 12.10.

    I am using Lubuntu 12.04 (on another USB) and cannot get fsck to run, because I need to login as root.

    Can anyone help?

    Just put sudo in front of the command.

    E.g.
    Code:
    sudo somecommand
