- su command + authentication failure 5 answers
I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10.
As i started the terminal and ran the command
su which we usually use to perform root operations and to get the # symbol.
After running the command it asks me to enter password, I entered the password which Ubuntu had asked me during installation.
I entered the password many times , but it gives me a message Authentication Failure
What should i do ???
