    Default Re: Admin password Kubuntu

    (K)Ubuntu uses sudo, so by default there isn't a root account. If you create a root account, then you can use su in a terminal window.

    Why not just use sudo?

    Type 'sudo su', that will do the trick for you. 'sudo bash --login' also works. Don't launch a shell directly with sudo, because your environment variables will be wrong.
