So I tried to unistall it using the
Code:
#apt-get remove synaptic
; removed succesfully, then Ireinstalled it using
Code:
# apt-get install synaptic
But here is the error emssage I get:

Have you tried to run synaptic from a terminal window? It looks like the package was installed. The errors probably didn't prevent the package from being installed. They might mean that links in Gnome and KDE didn't get created. Open konsole or gnome-terminal, find the synaptic binary, and try to run it.
