Automatic updates.

Postby alan2273 on Tue Oct 16, 2007 1:14 pm

Just a quick question.
When there were updates I used to get an orange circle in the task bar, now this has changed to a padlock, is there any reason for that.

I have been wondering about that ! I don't get a padlock or anything, how do I use Mint update then ? I have looked but I can't find.

download mintupdate from here: http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6034

the second deb installs an icon into the administration tab in your "start" menu.

It is being tested right now.
It works great, but this is for feedback and for new ideas to be added.
If you want to install it the info is here:
