Error opening Synaptic Package Manager?


The last thing I ran on my PC was Avast Antivirus. Are there any reported viruses in it? A screenshot of the error is attached!

LOL, of course Synaptic will grab your keyboard input, just because you have to authenticate to install software. You can be very sure that anything that comes from the official repositories (not some obscure PPA) will not contain malware.
