Did you mean Synaptic is not working? (genuine question, maybe there is something out there called Synapse)

I myself prefer Synaptic to anything else, so that bummed me. There is a workaround though; run:

xhost +si:localuser:root

After that, Synaptic works, reportedly only during the current login session. I haven't rebooted yet, so I haven't tested that.
