Password toor doesnt working on many apps

Hi guys I have tried this on 3 diff machines now so it is definately the OVA file itself

The root password only works reliably when I am typing it into a terminal …for example nmap
but if the password is requested by a gui dailog more then 90% of them don’t accept the password and say it is wrong for example anonsurf

Can someone help plz

Weird problem!
have you tried to reset root password?
