Having loaded full edubuntu with hardy 32 bit I can no longer open synaptic package manager has anybody got any ideas.

When I only loaded some packages off edubuntu all was fine but when I loaded the edubuntu desktop thing got a bit odd.

Can you try opening synaptic in a terminal and posting the output (if there is any)?

If you dont know how to do this: Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal, then type "synaptic"

Thanks for suggestion synaptic just launched straiht away using terminal no error message, however the program would then not respond.

It seemed to be edubuntu desktop that was causing the problem so I have reinstalled ubuntu hardy and will now have to be selective over what I load from edubuntu which is a pity because certain packages only seem to work with the full install

regards
