Ubuntu – Unable to use synaptic via launcher


When I open synaptic via launcher on gnome-panel, it opens and asks me for the password but if I enter the password, it says its wrong even though the password is correct and it used to work OK few days ago. If I open synaptic via terminal using sudo synaptic then it opens OK without any problem.
