Okay, my main account that I created during installation can su to root in Konsole whenever I want it to. But, I recently created a new account for my uses. I used: useradd -m -G users zero and set the password then logged in as the new account. However, I try: su and then type root's password but it denies me permission, how do I fix this?

Yuusou,

To be able to su to root the user needs to be a member of the wheel group.
