@alexander255 done that. Updated the question. There are several bluetooth related lines in it.

comment pkexec can not start any GUI application
@Salem I thought if there is a file /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/com.ubuntu.pkexec.synaptic.policy with contents similar to the ones you have mentioned in the earlier reply, synaptic would work. The file does exist in my system. The file does contain statements including <action id="com.ubuntu.pkexec.synaptic">, ` <allow_any>auth_admin</allow_any>, <allow_inactive>auth_admin</allow_inactive>` and <allow_active>auth_admin</allow_active> and the annotate key. So, unless there is something else I need to do, the problem remains even after following the steps --- I can't use synaptic.

comment pkexec can not start any GUI application
@Salem, I had visited that thread before posting this question. The discussion there is too complex and does not mention a way out of my problem. Just to clarify, I have /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/com.ubuntu.pkexec.synaptic.policy and it is very similar to the file mentioned in that question

comment Synaptic Package Manager doesn't launch from the Application Menu
@kubahaha I have exactly the same problem, synaptic-pkexec does not start. It asks for authentication and does nothing later. pkexec -- user root nautilus produces the same behaviour. The error is: No protocol specified ** (nautilus:3040): WARNING **: Could not open X display (nautilus:3040): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: What could be wrong?

There is no jockey-gtk command! Softward & Updates shows a tab Additional Drivers which lists only ATI card.
