Full Version: Need help with Root
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

My pc died and I assembled a new one. Now on the new PC I am using a USB to boot xubuntu without installing. Then I connected the old HDD from the PC that died. Now I want to copy the files from the old HDD to a seperate HDD then delete the old drive for a fresh xubuntu install.

The problem is I cannot copy the files from the old HDD. Permission denied. Now I have the root password. Just no place to insert it.

Gksudo nautilus is not working. Not coming up with anything.

Can anyone help me out?
Ubuntu live versons do not have a password i.e. it is blank.
