Basically, I want root permissions.

I am using the Ctrl + Shift + S bash shell. I want to install the following packages:
I get stuck at passwd to use su.
I want to install GNOME but I have the free plan with 512 MB RAM. Using LXQT instead.
These are the following packages that I need:

sudo neofetch nano* *lxqt* man firefox

How can I get root on repl.it?

Root perms would be incredibly dangerous, so they're not allowed.

I'm not trying to sudo rm -r -f / but I'm trying to install a few apps. Maybe Hacker has it? Who knows? Also, how does your image printer work? @SixBeeps

@GaneshaSharma Eh, it's still rather dangerous to just hand out root perms. I don't think hacker has it either, considering I had it for a month and I still couldn't sudo.

My image printer works by reading a bunch of color data in a string (hex codes in chunks of 6 characters) and plotting them to the screen. The newest rendition, however, takes advantage of the DRAW command, which takes in an array of colors instead.

I put a base 64 Creeper in there and it showed weird boxes. Anyway, I'm going to create a Linux Shell! @SixBeeps

Try install-pkg <package>. I doubt the desktop environments will work since repl.it just uses Docker containers or something.

@GaneshaSharma to be honest, there's nothing harmful that anyone can do with root access in the containers, since they're, well, containers, ...right?
