I still cannot login as root!  Did this version hide a block on root
somewhere else?

Yes.  You also need to edit /etc/pam.d/gdm-password (and _possibly_
/etc/pam.d/gdm-fingerprint if you use a fingerprint reader).


Not to pick on you in particular Mike, but I really think that folks
who feel they need to login as root ought to be better at knowing how
to diagnose and fix such problems.

No problems at all about your comments. My only question is, How does a new guy learn? If there is a better way I am ready to hear it. The problem is all I hear is "Never Log in as Root". Those comments never address "How do I install a add-on from inside Opera?" Just the unending mantra of Never Log in as Root"

Some of us are causal users who wander in from the Windows world! I wish I could live in Linux but, that ain't gonna happen!

I need to be able to log in as root to do my job! I wish it were not so but, it is! Life always fair!
