synaptic not working after update

Postby ccbarrow » 02 Feb 2019 22:02

Hi all, and thanks for having this n00b into the group..
Also, my problem is that after I successfully installed solydk on my box, after running the update, I can no longer access the synaptic package manager via the menu shortcut. I now have to use konsole and run it as "sudo synaptic"? Anyone familiar with what I may have done to cause this?

it should be synaptic-pkexec or something like that. as a workaround you can either edit your menu or create a custom launcher for it

Fixed itself upon reboot, but thanks for the reply! Weird to me, but as I stated... I'm a complete n00b. Getting much better though. I will copy/paste your reply, just in case it happens again.
Advice for any other noobs, newbs, or n00bs such as myself. When in doubt, 1) Don't panic, that is the kernel's job. AND 2) Don't forget to reboot whenever an upgrade or addition is made to your OS.
Seriously embarrassed here. Heh. LOL.
