I am trying to install the driver for a graphics card on the Ubuntu machine. It is saying to log in as "root" for the installation. How can I become a "root" user from the command line?

Open the terminal and type the following command:

sudo -i

It will ask for the password. Type your current user (non-root) password, and you will become the "root".
