comment pkexec won't launch polkit GUI in Lubuntu / LXDE
The trouble does seem to be with pkexec. "pkexec ls" from the Run menu (Alt+F2) does nothing. "pkexec ls" from the terminal authenticates within the terminal and then succeeds. I also tried another GUI program from the Run menu, "pkexec pcmanfm", and this does nothing. How would I go about configuring pkexec?

Just tried "apt-get install --reinstall synaptic". The process completed successfully, but it did not change the behavior of synaptic. The problem still exists, I'm afraid.

Thanks for the link. According to that thread, the bug was fixed in synaptic-0.75.2ubuntu6. Running "apt-cache policy synaptic" says I have 0.75.9ubuntu1 installed. "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" says I'm fully up to date.
