Logging as “root” in Ubuntu

if one really wants to enable the GUI “root” login (not recommended, think again!), following command can be used:

gksu gdmsetup

A GUI opens. In the security tab, there is an option which can be used to allow local system administrator login. The option needs to be checked in order to allow the “root” login. I highly recommend you not to do so and if you are keen to do so, do not let it to remain that way and bring the system to its default state AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
