How to Fix Root Applications on Ubuntu 17.10 Wayland

After upgrading to Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark), I could no longer open the Synaptic Package Manager.  I found a solution provided by AJ Reissig.

The solution is to run the following command from a terminal:

xhost si:localuser:root

Use the Startup Applications Preferences to run the command at startup.
