    How about just
    su

    It will prompt you for the root password then.

    Looks like you may have a corrupt file.

    Try ctrl+alt+f2 and login as root.



    F1 or f7 is your gui so you can switch back

    You check ownership with "ls -l"

    You should have two columns that say "root" (one is the owner, the other is the group). You change ownership with the "chown" command (chown {owner}[.group] file). But unless you can get root access on your PC, you won't be able to change the ownership of a file to root.

    I don't believe that Ubuntu allows you to login to the gui as root, but you can go to a virtual terminal using alt+ctrl+f2|f3|f4|f5|f6. That will give you a text login screen. To get back to the gui, you use alt+ctrl+f7 (or f1, I am not sure which, with Ubuntu).

    Once you are root, you can either just take care of the ownership of the files, or you can try to fix su. I think that Ubuntu uses yum to install packages (I have more experience with Fedora). Rather than fill up this thread with this stuff, best to take this to PM, or gtalk.

    After getting home, I finally got around to Googling this error. Do you, by any chance, have a ( in your password? Apparently there is a problem with that. Call it an undocumented feature.

    Forget about the zip files. You are passed that part.

    Does ctrl+alt+f2 bring you to a text login screen? Use ctrl+alt+f7 (or f1) to get back to the gui.

    You cannot login as root using Ubuntu, the next best thing would be to use `sudo su` or `gksu gnome-terminal` to obtain a root shell, though use of sudo is promoted. Considering the goal at hand, I would use `gksu nautilus` & use `right-click > properties` to modify file permissions.
