I installed from the LXQt live CD within the last 10 days.

Open the terminal, and enter "su". There is no password requested, and you are now root. Next, run the partition editor from the command line. Now you can partition your hdd or ssd. After you do that, get out of the terminal and choose "install" from the desktop.

What dibl states is true. su to root(no password required) and enter the application name. However if you access an application via the menu that requires privileges it will fail.

And that is exactly the point, there should be no need to go to terminal and type "su" to launch an application on a live session if the media and documentation say the only password you need is "live"
