    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package synaptic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'synaptic' has no installation candidate



    This is what I am getting

    Synaptic is available in the so-called universe repository. If you cannot find that package, it means that you do not have universe enabled.
    I'm assuming that you are using Quantal (12.10), so to enable it, open Software Sources and select Community-maintained free and open-source software (universe).
    After doing so, you will be asked to reload the software sources and you will be ready to install your package.

    Hi!, MamuMogambu,

    See my post #10 Edit note.

    What ubuntu distribution and version are you running ?
    Code:
    uname -ar
    What happens if you use 'Ctrl+Alt+F1' and login there and use the terminal commands ? ['Ctrl+Alt+F7'should take you back to the GUI].

    Chao!, bogan.
