Is it possible to log in as root just after booting ? I only get my

On OS13.2 and before there was a possibility to type the username. Now
it seems you can only graphically select users, and root is not
available (that I know of).



If you are using "kdm", you can configure it through the systems setting
"system administration/Login Screen", by default its configured to be
excluded. "ssdm" doesn't give you that option at all


I'm sorry to have caused such a hubub ;-).
The reason to log in as root is that as a regular user I lost my taskbar on the LVDS screen of my laptop. I wanted to log in as root and make another user to see what differs from the original user.
In the mean time I know how to get the taskbar back. Maybe not orthodox, but it works : I attached my VGA monitor, deleted the old taksbar (fixed on the VGA-screen) and created a new one on the LVDS screen.

Thanks anyway,
