hello stakhanov and hello everone
hi Colonel Panic "root terminal" we found is in the Menu : >Applications >System Tools > Root Terminal.
in antix this will ask for the sudo group User password, not root password, to open a superuser priveleged console.
Thanks, maybe I didn't look closely enough. I'll have another look in a minute when I'm back in AntiX.
[Edit: thanks, I've found it now. Thanks again for your help.]
