Can't login as root on Linux target and due to this I now can't restart the PC.

I setup Teamviewer 12 to start as a daemon so i could restart and login as root, however when i loged in as root it looks like Linux got stuck and i can't do anything, i'm not at my PC right now and i can't restart my PC manually, but i can still access my PC from Teamviwer, i can't use shortcuts to open the terminal or anything, i can't press ctrl+alt+delete because that just causes my windows 10 host PC to do it, how can i fix this? This might be a Ubuntu problem more so then a teamviwer problem but i think i'll post it here just in case.

Dear Sol33t303,

Thank you for your post.

TeamViewer should not be run as root. 

If you like to perform something that needs root we suggest using the sudo command.

Have a try to log in as a regular user and let us know if that works for you.

Hope this solution works for you.

 

Best regards,

Christian
