Kernel : Linux 3.11.0-15-generic (i686)
Compiled : #25-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 30 17:25:07 UTC 2014
Distribution : Ubuntu 13.10
Desktop Environment : LXDE (Lubuntu)

Start button, System tools, Synaptic doesn't prompt me for a password, so I can't actually download/install anything. (sudo synaptic works as required) What do I have to edit to get the link working correctly?

Thanks in advance!

Check the command being used in the menu. It should be:

synaptic-pkexec
