root login to GUI
I know this can be dangerous, but it is still my preference to be able to login to a GUI as the root user.
I have managed to allow this by editing the file KDMRC, the line:
change it to:
That gets me to a GUI as root, BUT regardless of what GUI is selected, things just don't look right, and the way they do look, it's hard to find much of anything. If I use KDE as root, there aren't ANY icons at all on the desktop, and no clock!
I know you can just add all that stuff, but, is there any way to, in addition to allowing a GUI loggin as root, have the GUI appearance default to just like any other user?
NOTE - Yes I am also aware of the su terminal command - but despite the risk, I really prefer to be able to loggin in to a GUI, and have a "normal" default appearance as the root user.
I suspect that they don't setup anything for root, because they don't expect anyone to use the GUI as root.
A partial answer lies in calling specific GUI apps from the command-line (as root)
