synaptic uses su-to-root instead of gksudo in the debian menu file

Bug #14844 reported by Bob Nielsen on 2005-04-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
synaptic (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

With su-to-root, the actual root password, rather than the password of a
sudoers-enable user is require. This is inconsistent with the lack of an actual
root user, which is the default in Ubuntu.
