If you don't even know how to use Google, you're definitely not someone who should run as root all the time, all those graphical buggy apps.

I had to.

Hi -

su -c 'vi /etc/pam.d/gdm'
<= Edit the PAM file for your graphical manager

# auth required user != root quiet
<= Comment this line out
'Hope that helps (and feel free to click the little blue "thumbs up" icon if it did) .. PSM

As I'm sure you already know, please try to make it a habit to log in as a *non-root* user whenever possible.
