First, I got the Fedora APT file at http://freshrpms.net/packages/
and the RPM install was easy. Then I had APT update its database opening the Terminal becoming root and then typing apt-get update, then Enter. APT then checked my system and all was well.
The next thing I did was to install Synaptic, the graphical front end for APT, by typing as root: apt-get install synaptic That went well too and Synaptic was installed and I opened it and looked it over. The next day I went to open it again and it just wont launch from the start menu or the terminal. Very strange.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
