I notice in the console, kde4 squeeze when I run "sudo synaptic and 
enter the passwd" that I get the error: (synaptic:28768): Gtk-WARNING 
**: cannot open display: :0.0

In, trinity squeeze when I run "sudo synaptic and enter the passwd" 
synaptic opens.

In kde4, gksu in the console opens synaptic needing the passwd.

In trinity, gksu in the console opens synaptic without the passwd.

These are all clues, but, I'm too ignorant to know what is causing the 
difference, probably something to do with sudo not timing out.

All I know is that someway-somehow I would like to get the Debian behavior.

I'm sure it's something simple in the Trinity way and the Debian way 
that is causing all these permission differences, after all this is a 
Debian system, not a Ubuntu system.

At the same time I would like to say that my trinity ubuntu 10.04 system 
is great, I mostly use it while the squeeze system has these bugs.

The trinity 10.10 system has been doing some really weird things, like 
logging out and back in to find all kinds of desktop settings have 
changed, but I really would rather not get into that as the squeeze 
install is more important to me.
