Thanks much for the feedback, always very appreciated! Good to hear my oops didn't cause you trouble.oldgranola wrote: ↑Fri Dec 06, 2019 12:49 pmSaw the push message to fix the update manager oops, followed the CLI approach. Worked fine thanks Just loving this PPA, particularly the update manager. And especially in THAT , the kernel manager tool. I can even look at non-generic including low latency kernels for my gaming toy. I also really appreciate the more granular handling of removing old kernels. Now I can ditch UKUU on LM.
If anything, then Source Packages, for that is the technical term. But it would make for an unnecessarily long column title. I've been adding (Sources) to source code repositories all along and nobody ever complained, so I was meaning to stay consistent with that. The repository listing will also still contain the (Sources) suffix.
Not so much I'd say, because checking the sources box doesn't mean that your system will do anything with it, which it won't unless you specifically instruct it to download a source package from it - something most users wouldn't even know how to do. But checking the "Enabled" column means that the binary packages will appear everywhere in Update Manager, Package Manager, Software Manager, etc.Drugwash wrote: ↑Fri Dec 06, 2019 1:06 pmYes, when any of the checkboxes is enabled/marked then the PPA is enabled. What if one only wants the sources and not the binaries? Wouldn't the Enabled checkbox mislead them?
Anyway, I know I asked for feedback and yet I am pushing back against it, but this discussion is helpful to me and shows why I asked - it's not clear cut. How about a compromise in the form of an explanatory tooltip on each checkbox? Seems best to me.
