Ubuntu – Ubuntu 13.04 claims the root password wrong


while opening the bleachbit(as root) , gedbi and bootup- manager , it asks for the root password and on entering the password shows that the password is wrong ,

for other things like updating , installing the software from ubuntu software center the same password works well
due this problem i am not able to use boot up manager , gedbi, deepin-software-center and bleachbit (as root )
i am using ubuntu 13.04 with gnome shell and password length is of one letter

  • Got it working thank you Alaa

    Run the command gksu-properties and change the "Authentication mode" to "sudo" and close. Now do gksu bleachbit, or whatever GUI application you want to run as root, and type your password (the one you use for updating and installing)
