Yesterday I upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04, and today I am unable to run
synaptic ! I get a window with the message:

"failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic  as root, unable to copy the users
Xauthorization file"

what to do?

thinks it is; rather, in it we find ourselves at that meeting point of
constraint and freedom that is the very essence of human nature."
