gksu gedit /usr/share/applications/synaptic.desktop



and change line Exec=synaptic-pkexec to Exec=gksu synaptic

Re: [solved] Problems to open synaptic icon.

That will work until synaptic is upgraded to a newer version. Then your edited .desktop file will be replaced. I solved that problem by making a separate .desktop file called synaptic-gksu.desktop. Make sure to change the Name field, because you will have two entries in your menu for synaptic. You need to be able to tell them apart.

I have a gksu synaptic launcher stacked in the Xfce panel so never have to open from the menu or desktop.  wink  Ditto other root accessible apps.
