I used to be able to login to a desktop environment in Linux Mint even as the root superuser until I had a partition disaster and had to re-install it.
Now I can't remember the terminal command I used to enable the root to login to it's own desktop. I tried using the users and groups program from the desktop, but that doesn’t work; it says root already exists. I seem to remember that there is a command (an old UNIX command I think) that will work from a terminal.
Does any one know what it is?
