plz try below tricks to enable root access

open a terminal and type "su" then your root password
2) type "apt-get install leafpad"
3) type "leafpad /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf"
under security type "AllowRoot=true"
4)type "leafpad /etc/pam.d/gdm3"
comment out this line: auth required pam_succeed_if.so user != root quiet_success
5) restart computer and login as root

Return to “Installation”
