But now I wanted to work under "root" as one of the software I am trying to install requires me to get into root. I did "su" and  entered the same password as "sudo" but it fails.

unopgeeksauce,  SSH is a protocol -- the utilities might or might not be command line -- like for e.g. there's winscp , a GUI, that supports SCP/SFTP connections02:55
cwoodallmegafauna: u can also use gedit as follows ( sudo gedit name_of_file )02:55
efrancolaporteyes im in dapper and yes i have firefox 1.502:55
unopgeeksauce,  it's just down to the individual client really02:55
