Hi Lindows has just installed synaptic. But of course it didn't install it to the menu. Where will I find it and how do I install it to the menu? Thanks Rich
If you've *just* installed Synaptic, then it probably won't be in your menu until you restart KDE/Gnome/whatever. Try that first. If that fails, then try: Synaptic should only be run as root - I don't know how this fits in with Lindow's view of users (is the only/default user root or another username with root's privileges?). But, anyway, as such it will be in root's PATH. I have a button on my "taskbar" that runs this: "gksu -u root /usr/sbin/synaptic" although "kdesu -u root /usr/sbin/synaptic" will also work if you want a QT/KDE root-authentication box. If it doesn't appear after restarting (logging out/in) of KDE/Gnome, then you can edit the menu and add the above as a new button.
