Default lost root? after custom ROM install.

Hey guys so I was running sacs custom ROM running all sorts of rooted apps. So I wanted a changed and have always loved slimkat ROMs v20 which is the newest version. So all went well but no supersu. I downloaded the link for the updated supersu and no luck using rooted apps. What can it be??

May be the su binary is missing?

Try re-root again by yourself.

Either Re-root, or reflash the root/SU package in recovery.

Is there a link for either or I love this ROM and wouldn't want to lose this after a backup has been made. Just weird that my previous ROM has root access and flashing this ROM no supersu.

Ahh SlimKat, enable root in settings

-EDIT Not used SlimKat since my Nexus 5- it's in developer settings IIRC - they disable root by default

Yeah, Slim disable root by default. If you go into developer options you can enable it.
