Synaptic keeps crashing. When I open it, it asks for the sudo password. I give the password, then the synaptic window flashes for less than a second and then goes away.
After seeing this problem I uninstalled synaptic using apt-get. Uninstalled, cleaned, removed, auto-removed, purged... every possible option from apt-get.
Then I tried installing synaptic from scratch. Still no luck.
Help please! I just did a clean install of Ubuntu 11.10 yesterday.
I also removed the ~/.synaptic folder -- no luck.
Here is the terminal output:
$ sudo synaptic terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::out_of_range' what(): vector::_M_range_check
