Role does not exist when running script.

I can run the following command with no problem on my database.

/usr/bin/vacuumdb --verbose --analyze --all -U super_user

But if I try to execute it via a shell script, I receive the following error.   The role does exist in the database.

does not existnot connect to database postgres: FATAL:  role "super_user

I am new to postgresql so any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Role does not exist when running script.

Actually that was my second attempt.  The postgres user gives me the same message, so I tried creating a new super user to see if it would work.
