    Root binary is inbuilt in Lineage OS 14.1, so you don’t need a separate SuperSu package to install to gain ROOT access. Here is How to Enable ROOT on Lineage OS 14.1
    If there is no in-built ROOT or it does not work for some reason then you can try flashing SuperSU zip using recovery or else install the CF auto root for Galaxy S5 Mini: to gain ROOT access.

    Hi! I have installed this ROM today… I’m liking it so far, but I have one major issue with it, when I try to use the camera, it doesn’t open. It goes to the main screen without even opening or it asks me to force close it. Any idea why this may be happening. Thanks

    I flashed successfully, and it’s working great so far. There are two non-trivial issues, though:

    1) The LineageOS super user add-on does not install; the installation procedure aborts with some error message that looks SELinux-related. I tried flashing SuperSU, too, which succeeded bit still gave me no working su binary. As it seems now, the only way to work as superuser on the device is via “adb shell”, which does support root access (after enabling it in the developer settings).

    2) Any attempt to configure my providers call forwarding invariably crashed the system. It makes no difference whether I dial codes like ##21# or #21# manually or whether I try to accomplish the same thing through the preferences menu in the dialer. So there’s clearly some issues in the interaction with the modem, which is reminiscent of previous versions that used to have all kinds of problems providing reliable calls.

    Anyhow, the ROM is working really nicely otherwise (if you don’t need super user access).
