How to get notifications for package updates

From Salix OS
Jump to: navigation, search

You can just install salix-update-notifier with gslapt or using slapt-get:

slapt-get -i salix-update-notifier

That will run a service that will check every now and then for package updates in the background and will display a system tray notification icon when there are package updates available in the repositories. By clicking on it, gslapt will be launched directly in upgrade mode where you can review the package upgrades and agree to apply them or not.

The salix-update-notifier package is already installed in a full mode installation of Salix.
