Re: Synaptic partial install - will not run

gkreidl, I ran lxtask from a terminal window and task manger gui window opened...searched and found lxpolkit...running? at 0%. while in the terminal window I typed "ps -a" and it only returned within the terminal window the PID data for TTY.

Re: Synaptic partial install - will not run

gkreidl....and how would I check to see if lxpolkit is running? Since I guess it is not, hence my original problem.
Should lxpolkit be running? seems like that answer would be yes. So why is mine not? Is lxpolkit necessary?

oh this feels like I am running down a rabbit whole.....

next steps?

Re: Synaptic partial install - will not run

I am curious also. I have made no "modifications" to the full Raspbian OS Buster load. I am way too new to tweak anything. I am willing to look at any setting if that would help.

gkreidl,
I am not familiar with a manual install. Can you help walk me through the download site and how to manually install a dpkg?

Re: Synaptic partial install - will not run

gkreidl, So if I understand correctly, I should install gksudo? But when I type sudo apt install gksudo, it tells me unable to locate package gksudo. What should I be installing? And how should I adjust the Synaptic Command field in the Preference menu? And of course, if it was removed and I reinsta...

Re: Synaptic partial install - will not run

Botspot,
Sorry - for clarity, it is synaptic-pkexec, but that command does not start synaptic. So - it should be changed, yes?

Re: Synaptic partial install - will not run

Botspot,
You are correct - when I type sudo synaptic while in the terminal window, the synaptic GUI interface starts.....and the program works.

When I go to Main Menu - Preference - Synaptic item and select, nothing happens.

Re: Update breaks bluetooth

cstuettgen,
It most certainly does help! :D

I am working this right now....on my various RPi 4's.


So, this might be a funny question, but how would one know the issue has been resolved/fix, etc....with the bluetooth function?

Many - many thanks !
