How to enable root account in Ubuntu/mint

Although sudo itself is enough for all workouts...but still seeing # gives a different sense ...
This small hack also enables logging to root account through GUI....
So here is the command (very simple)..In ubuntu based distro the root account doesn't have a password so what we do is to give a passwd to the root account .
Here is the command...

sudo passwd

This will ask first your passwd then new passwd for the root..give a strong passwd and enjoy(root account)....but be careful..
