    Arrow Terminal Line Creating Folders/Locked Folders

    So I'm trying to install some codecs, but the problem is that they are supposed to go to
    /usr/local/lib/codecs/
    and i don't have a "codecs" folder in /lib. When i manually go to that folder, I can't make a new folder in it because I'm not logged in as the root.
    So I'm guessing that this has to be done in the terminal. I've logged in as root, and then changed my directory to
    /usr/local/lib , but i don't know where to go from there.
    Is there a way to log in as the root in the GUI, or a way to create folders via terminal?

    Thanks for the help/support, I'm slowly tinkering along Linux with your help!
