Hi: A programmer who relies entirely on code [now on vacation] worked on our Ubuntu 10.4. Now there is no synaptic on the machine. How do I reinstall it? Thanks Chris

Synaptic is a graphical front-end to apt. Try


sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install --reinstall synaptic

You need to to do this in a terminal.

Alt+F2

Type gnome-terminal
