Exclamation [Q] Lost root with Slimkat

Hello, two days ago I rooted my Nexus 5 and unlocked the bootloader. Yesterday I wanted to install custom rom, I decided on Slimkat, and when it was installed, I didn't have root permissions. I've never seen a ROM without root. I've tried all the usual ways of rooting, but I can't root it.

Do any of you know how?

download supersu http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
boot into your custom recovery, then flash supersu. reboot after.

you have to flash the superuser binaries whenever you flash with many n5 roms.

you'll also need to enable root access in the Developer options.

Flashing SuperSU is like... THE way to root... you're lucky you haven't been eaten alive yet by the community. xD

I still can't figure out why they didn't just include SuperSU in the ROM zip file. Having to flash another zip to have root seems silly.

Because it's compiled with superuser in the settings menu like many other aosp roms. You only have to activate root by turning it on in settings

Hi, it was just me being stupid xD I'm used to ROMs for my LG Optimus 4X HD where root was always enabled by default. Thanks for all your help, and I'll make sure to read on the ROMs website the next time I encounter a problem.
