I just installed Madbox Linux which is a Ubuntu 12.04 distro running Openbox as the WM/DE.
For some reason when I install Synaptic using sudo apt-get install synaptic after installing and launching Synaptic presents a message "starting without administrative privileges. Also when I try to access any of the partitions on my HD I get this:
Authentication is required.
What should I do? When I do an ID from the terminal I get this:
uid=1000(randy) gid=1000(randy) groups=1000(randy),4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(di p),46(plugdev),115(lpadmin),116(sambashare)
