Re: [MiyoLinux] Update on the Update Notifier

There you go being all reasonable'n stuff...  big_smile

Thanks fsr! I'll stick with just Synaptic.

One last question (anyone's input is welcome)...for the "Would you like to update your system now?" window...

Would the words plus icons...or...just the words alone be preferable on the buttons?

Thanks!

If I were to use it  . . . the lighter the better.  Nags even for good things should be minimal.  I demand it in my world.

That's one of the nice things about it...it's not running constantly in the background. It only runs when told to by the script. I haven't checked it with top or htop, but I have noticed that when it does run, the RAM usage showing in my conky only goes up about 10 MBs for a few seconds (while it checks for updates) then the RAM drops right back down. wink

Re: [MiyoLinux] Update on the Update Notifier

Actually, I was not speaking about light on resources but unobtrusive visually.  wink  That's one honkin' humongous popup!  This is not in any way to suggest you change a thing.  I was just messin' with you a bit . . .  big_smile  It's a brilliant execution of a function that many will find useful.

Re: [MiyoLinux] Update on the Update Notifier

Oh.

LOL! tongue

That last picture with the 4 buttons? That's no longer an option. wink

Actually, I'm waiting to hear back from someone about something. So...I'm still working on it. I probably won't get it uploaded tonight like I said that I would.

Re: [MiyoLinux] Update on the Update Notifier

Hi everyone. I'm sorry...I was going to upload the update notifier today, but my internet has been having a nervous-jerkdown. It won't stay connected for over a minute or two.  neutral

I'll try again tomorrow.

Re: [MiyoLinux] Update on the Update Notifier

Okay! Connection issues are better today but still going in and out. tongue  At least I was able to get the Update Notifier(s) uploaded!

Actually, the connection issues proved beneficial and gave me the time and opportunity to make some executive decisions...which I hope are explained well enough in the quote from the readme file below. wink  Instead of offering only one version, I'm offering three versions.

Update Notifier downloads are available here...

https://sourceforge.net/projects/miyoli … -Notifier/

ATTENTION: IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE MIYOLINUX UPDATE NOTIFIER, YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE IT BEFORE INSTALLING ONE OF THE NEW VERSIONS.

********************

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE 3 VERSIONS AVAILABLE

In keeping with the MiyoLinux philosophy of allowing the user to decide what goes on their system, I am providing 3 versions of the Update Notifier so that the user can choose the one that they prefer. smile  The available versions are...

miyolinux-update-notifier_2.1_all.deb
miyolinux-update-notifier_2.1.1_all.deb
miyolinux-update-notifier_2.1.2_all.deb

The differences are explained at the bottom of this file.

********************

After installation, log out (or reboot) for the Update Notifier to begin working.

********************

Some window manager users may need to manually add the following line to their autostart file...

/usr/share/update-notifier/update-notifier.py

********************

On minimal systems, if desktop notifications are not appearing, you may choose to install one of the following...

notification-daemon (see note)
xfce4-notifyd
dunst

NOTE: if you install notification-daemon, you may need to add the following line to your autostart...

/usr/lib/notification-daemon/notification-daemon

********************

After installation, you can view the README file in /usr/share/doc/miyolinux-update-notifier/ for more information.

********************

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE VERSIONS...

miyolinux-update-notifier_2.1_all.deb
miyolinux-update-notifier_2.1.1_all.deb
miyolinux-update-notifier_2.1.2_all.deb


Version 2.1 - When you click the icon in the system tray, it will open a window asking if you want to update your system now. There are three buttons to choose from...

"Show Updates" will show the available updates in a notification window.

"Yes" will close the window and open an Authentication window. After entering your password, the Synaptic Package Manager will open (See Synaptic's usage in Version 2.1.1).

"No" will close the window.



Version 2.1.1 - When you click the icon in the system tray, it will open an Authentication window. After entering your password, the Synaptic Package Manager will open and show the available updates. Click "Mark" to automatically perform the upgrade. Click "Cancel" to not install the updates and close Synaptic.



Version 2.1.2 - When you click the icon in the system tray, it will open an Authentication window. After entering your password, a modified xterm will open. It will show the available updates in the terminal, and the user can then choose whether to install the updates or not. Choosing Y (or just hit Enter on your keyboard) will automatically perform the upgrades, and xterm will automatically close when the upgrades are complete. Choosing n will not install the updates and close xterm.

NOTE: Version 2.1.2 is considered a testing version. While it has performed flawlessly for me on multiple computers (using both ASCII and Beowulf), there may be some systems in which xterm may not work correctly. If it doesn't work, remove this version, and try one of the other two which uses Synaptic. smile

Nice!! I'll take both..
And this is Easy to tweak..but I'm torn between:
Pop-quiz 'user', you have updates waiting on your input...whata ya do? hmm
and
So, ya don't wanna update now? "I'll be back!" yikes

on to finding matching icons! tongue

As always MiyoLinux...nice addition to your builds ~ for the users 'ease of use'!!
Allot of time and effort...I hope you remember to eat and visit family often. lol
