I think it's a remnant from a failed envy-ng instance but everytime this one user (admin) logs in synaptic starts and throws up a dialog about not being in root. The status bar at the bottom of the app doesn't list any pending or broken installs.
What xfdesktop or xfce4 file do I edit to try and find the startup call? I've disabled everything on the Autostarts program; even the power manager to no effect.
Other user (poweruser) starts her session no problem.
Thanks in advance,
