Thanks for the two responses suggesting gksudo. This takes me a stage
further. I now have :
in the script.
Sure enough this opens a window to enter a password, but then synaptic
does not run after the correct password is entered.
gksudo -u <username> usr/sbin/synaptic gives the same result.
More enlightenment please.
