root shell terminal [solved]


 Share

Recommended Posts

Instead of using the Optional menus / terminal sessions / root shell terminal,

I would like to execute it from the task bar. What would I execute? I have tried /bin/bash in terminal, do not close, execute as root... but I am not quite there... It comes up in the user's directory instead of the root directory, even though I specify /root/ for the work path.

tia!

EDIT: second question: how do I get the system to not put my IP addy in the prompt?

tia!

1/ I would say, something like this:

kdesu -u root -- su - root -c xterm

I don't know kdesu though so I made up the above line, by supposing that:

- kdesu takes its user from the -u parameter, and

- kdesu uses -- to mark the end of its own options and the beginning of the command.

 

You'll have to adapt to what the man page says.
