get access to root

@poorguy - The OP is running Kali, where the only user IS root.

@pratap73 - The program is complaining because it isn't meant to run as root. The error message is telling you to use the --allow-root option to allow the program to run as root.

So run it as:
jupyter notebook --allow-root

Just an FYI. In Kali, you can choose to make one or more regular Users with restricted access, and I do not know if the program would run under that environment, without complaint.



... and welcome to linux.org @pratap73 :)
