Unhappy Synaptic Gui ver on Suse 10.0 - error message : "command synaptic not found"


Hi - To whom it may concern

I install synaptic-1.57-0.suse093.rb0.i586.rpm on suse 10.0 machine and when I click on the icon of the application it prompt me to enter my "Run as Root - KDE su password" ... after I enter KDE su password, I get "Command sypnatic not found" ... I click ok and application disappear... thanks

it's probably just not in your path.

use 'find / -iname synaptic | less' to find the executable, then give the full path instead of just 'synaptic' to your KDE-su program.

I type this at the command line under su and I'm getting this message

linux:/home/suse # find / -iname synaptic
/opt/gnome/share/omf/synaptic
/opt/gnome/share/gnome/help/synaptic
/opt/gnome/share/synaptic
/usr/sbin/synaptic
/usr/share/doc/packages/synaptic

Type '/usr/sbin/synaptic' instead of 'synaptic' (no quotes).

Hey Jonas
I type at the root linux:/home/suse # find / -iname /usr/sbin/synaptic
find: warning: Unix filenames usually don't contain slashes (though pathnames do). That means that '-iname /usr/sbin/synaptic' will probably evaluate to false all the time on this system. You might find the '-wholename' test more useful, or perhaps '-samefile'. Alternatively, if you are using GNU grep, you could use 'find ... -print0 | grep -FzZ /usr/sbin/synaptic'.
find: /media/floppy: No medium found

I'm getting this error message.

That is, in the kdesu program, not on the command line.
