Re: Incorrect password when using Synaptic Package Manager


Hi Hung,

Have you tried it from your normal user account, rather than root?
Just select Synaptic from the {references menu, and use your normal
*user* password, not the root password.  The first user created during
install has privileges to use the sudo/gksudo commands, and the
default is for there to be no root account password at all.

Hope this helps,
