個人的には[kali Linux]のデスクトップ画面が昔よりカッコよくなっていると感じます。

Personally, I feel that the [kali Linux] desktop screen is more stylish than before.


There is a terminal icon in the upper left of the screen. Let's click it and launch the terminal.

If you type [whoami], the name of the user who is currently logged in to the terminal will be displayed.

$ whoami


Now switch the user to [root] (superuser).

[sudo su -]と入力して、パスワードを入力してください。パスワードは先ほどログイン時に入力したデフォルトの[kali]です。

Enter [sudo su -] and enter your password. The password is the default [kali] you entered when you logged in.

$ sudo su -
[sudo] password for kali: kali


You can verify that the user is [root] by typing [whoami].

You can also confirm that by looking at the user name on the left side, but there is a skull and crossbones in the place, which is somewhat creepy.


This is probably because there is a rule that says [It is better not to work as root user as much as possible.].


This is because [root], as superuser, has various privileges, making it easy to rewrite important file settings, etc.


So, when you need administrator privileges, instead of becoming the root user, use [sudo] to temporarily run commands as the root user.

では[kali Linux]が正常に使えることが確認できたので、[kali Linux]をシャットダウンしましょう。

Now that [kali Linux] is working properly, shut down [kali Linux].
