GUI login as root on Mint 13

Postby dswaim91 on Wed Jun 27, 2012 11:34 pm

Having browsed the topics related to this, I did not find an answer. I believe that I have successfully set a root password in the terminal per the related posts in the forum. However when I try to login in at the login screen as root, I get a message saying that administrator cannot login from this screen. How can I login as root to the cinnamon gui?

Yes, I know this is a bad idea, but I really want to know how to so it. Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

In "Login Window", in "Security" tab, choose "Allow local system administrator login". You will be able to login as root.
