Question Problems enabling GUFW, UFW in Debian


Hi. I have a problem with the unix firewall (gufw)
I'm using Linux Mint Debian Edition.

The problem appears when I double click on the icon to bring it up for configuring.
Everything is grayed out so I click on the "unlock" button.

Normally, this is when gufw comes alive with color.

But all I get now is a note on the bottom of the gray screen that says "Wrong Identification". Uninstalling and reinstalling UFW and GUFW didn't fix the problem.

I would like to have my firewall working for me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
