Hi and thanks, I have been looking around for a new distro and found what I needed in Manjaro, I use Awesome WM for my work.
I built an XFCE and put Awesome on top but it seemed to have a lot of little problems like the monitor sequence was off.
I use 4 monitors and for shortcuts to work in Awesome when moving documents around, that needs to be correct. Specifically, monitors from left to right should be in line according to their position. They were not.
Anyway, there were other items. I decided to try the community build of Awesome, that seemed to not suffer from this.
The problem is, is that I can no longer login as root which I could on the original build from Manjaro. Not only that but I can't even sudo command line without a request for the password. What is the point of a UI of this is how you have to launch an app? I might as well be CLI.
I understand some of the reasoning but one of the reasons I chose Manjaro was the original builds allowed for root login. I have been a developer for over 30 years, I work from home, I don't share my computer, I am on a firewalled network. Literally, I would need to have root privileges like a hundred times a day.
All my legacy data is stored on devices with root as the owner, I can't even open them. Please if someone would tell me how to configure it for root login it would be appreciated.
Thanks for any help in this area. I spent a lot of time deciding what distro and would like it to be this one.
