Is there some sort of system install script that re-installs

apt-get install --reinstall synaptic
or, more forcefully
apt-get remove --purge synaptic
apt-get install synaptic
might do it, I suppose. You will lose any synaptic-specific
configuration with the second (though not apt- or dpkg- wide like
sources.list or pinning)
This sounds like it's some sort of a problem you're already aware of by
the way you describe it; - is there a bug filed for it? I've not seen
this, but I don't use synaptic. How can I reproduce this when I'm back
on my Ubuntu box?
I might not be able to fix it (likely) but I'm intrigued.
Well, what you have to do is a fresh install of Mint11, then decide it's
not for you, so you start ripping out various mint packages and repos,
to get down to the basic natty that was underneath. So far, nothing
major has blown up, except for where-ever synaptic thinks it's scripts
are installed to.
Basically, I need what stores or restores Natty to it's pristine initial
package database(?)/script condition when a saner person installs Natty
to begin with. I've already removed/installed synaptic more than once.
~or~ maybe it's an apt-get package that generates the script synaptic is
Gonna go witch-hunt around to see what there is in apt-get land that
might init it. This process actually IS intriguing! I'm learning some
stuff. Thanks Avi.
