Enabel super user log in on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

In order to maintain higher security level and keep the user from accidental breakage of the system the root user log in is disabled by default. To enable it, open a terminal window and type:

sudo passwd root

you will be prompted to enter the root user password. When done press enter.

That’s it. Now you can work from the command line like super user.
