Speak English, provide more information and describe your problem adequately if you want help.

If you need to do something that requires administrator privileges, you would normally just run sudo, followed by the command that you want to run. There are a number of options to using sudo, like sudo -s, or sudo -i. I have always just used plain old sudo in the 5+ years that I have been using Ubuntu; and I have never had a problem with it.

And welcome to the LQ forums!

Code:
sudo passwd root
If you are looking to enable the root account on Ubuntu, you will need to do that.

This is a quote from Terry Pratchett's discworld. A great writer, he.

Quote:
"Why does a duck when it spins?"
Its actually meant to be "Why is a mouse when it spins?" The answer? Because the higher, the fewer.

I think the issue here is that the topic was poorly defined.

On a hunch, I think the answer is:
"It's the same as the password for your user account."
