I just installed Ubuntu Server here, which went fine. However, not sure what's going on here now.
I installed gnome using
sudo aptitude install --without-recommends ubuntu-desktop, which worked great. But, I'm not able to use the Synaptic Package Manager!
When using the Login Screen thing I can click unlock and it asks for authorization. I enter the password I gave during install, and it works fine. But when SPM asks for my password, it doesn't accept it! What's going on? My user password is the only one I have been asked to create. I can use
sudo fine in the terminal. Why does SPM block me here?
