On a new install, I cannot reproduce the problem

Is it possible you might have caps locks on?

Did it ask for and you did put in your password?

Edit - those errors are normal errors

Do you use a mouse wheel?  A turn of a mouse wheel can switch you to the next desktop... Is it possible that synaptic is open on another desktop?

Yes it did. I provided the passwd then the errors happened.

Just to discard it. When you say my password you mean your user password? su-to-root is typically set for  the root's password.

I did not change the default, for the root password during installation. The su-to-root command, root's password doesn't change anything.

I can start synaptic from the cli so it really is not a huge issue. Trying to open synaptic from the menu is still a no go.

Has this happened before or after your initial dist-upgrade?

To the best of my knowledge, it has been like this since after the initial install. I've been using the command line to install, then thought I would use synaptic, to look up a package or two, and that is when I noticed.

I have installed the same ISO on several machines including on an hp laptop and I cannot reproduce the error. I am hoping to hear from PackRat soon to get some input from him from a FluxBox perspective...

The right click menu has a  FluxBox submenu and within there is a FluxBox Menu Editor. Open that and find Synaptic and verify the command is in fact

Code: [Select]
su-to-root -X -c synaptic
