Updates 2014/11/03


We have two new apps in our repo:

1. As Jessie mentioned at the Weekly Distrowatch Issue 581, you can’t manage the system services using the standard ‘systemd-ui’ tool.
sparky-systemd-ui lets you manage systemd units as root.
It provides the Menu entry to do so.

2. ‘System Upgrade’ is the second new app which lets you fully upgrade the system.
Simply install ‘sparky-aptus-upgrade’ package from our repository.

Sparky APTus Upgrade


1. As GenyC suggested on our forums, I added application status to the ‘sparky-aptus-extra’ tool. Now you can see has an application been installed or not.
Updated up to version 0.1.7

Sparky APTus Extra

2. Tor Browser has been upgraded up to version 4.0.1 which includes Tor

3. VMware Player On-Line Installer has been updated to the 6.0.4-1 version.

4. Sparky Conky manager upgraded up to version 0.1.7-1. (thank’s to way12go)
It includes a new applet with a battery status (not enabled)



Sparky Conky Manager 0.1.6


Sparky Conky Manger 0.1.6 is out.
It provides a few small bugs fixing and a new feature: Color changer.

It lets you change the default Conky color via just two clicks.
Colors available: black, blue, gray, green, red, white, yellow.

To get the new conky look you have to update it up to 0.1.6 and reload the Sparky’s Conky configuration file. Then choose your color.

If Conky will not start after choosing a new color, get back to the main menu and start it.
