In the interim you can also:

Command line way for Ubuntu 17.10:

sudo nano /etc/gdm3/custom.conf

uncoment "WaylandEnable=false"

--> reboot.

This removes the Wayland entries from the login menu & leaves (in my case):
GNOME on Xorg
GNOME (Flashback Compiz)
GNOME (Flashback Metacity)
Ubuntu on Xorg

I tested on all of the above & Synaptic is working just fine. I
typically only run GNOME Flashback so I can't vouch for Ubuntu on Xorg,
but running that desktop for a few hours seemed to be OK on my 17.10 system.
