There is a new, small tool available for Sparkers: Update Checker & Notifier
The tool checks (in shadow) packages to be upgraded and displays notification on desktop.
sudo apt update
sudo apt install sparky-aptus-upgrade-checker
Then reboot to let it start working.
It doesn’t run if:
• running live system
• no active internet connection
• ‘sparky-firstrun’ is installed
It runs ones per system boot, with 30 second of delay.
If runs and finds packages to be upgraded, it lets you start the default Sparky’s upgrade tool (sparky-aptus-upgrade).
It uses Yad, so it’s desktop independent.
