Synaptic problem


Hi all, long time reader first time poster!!

I have Frdora core 1 and I installed Synaptic and everyting seems fine, I have the Synaptic icon in the system tools -> more system tools area but when I click it it askes me for the root password, I give it and nothing happen. Try again now that I'm in root, again nothing happens.
So I try in in termanial, I " su - " then give the password, find where synaptic is, (in the /usr/bin and the /usr/sbin area) then I try to run it from terminal, and again nothing happends. any ideas?
Thanks in advance

sorry I'm a bit of a n00b so i'll assume that "top" is the system monitor?
And if thats the case, no it it not running in the system monitor.

type 'top' at the cli, it lists running processes, among other things. 'apt install synaptic' say its already installed?
