Mintupdate doesn't show updates automaticaly

Post by Bandicoot » Wed Jan 02, 2008 3:42 pm

Why is it that mintupdate doesn't show there are updates automatically ?? I have mintupdate running and have set it to automatically check for updates. However, although the lock symbol is flashing now and then (to indicate that it is checking if there are any updates I presume) it never shows me that there are updates available! When I click on the lock and hit the refreshbutton the available updates are shown.

It strikes me that this is not the behaviour it should have, after all what's the point of letting it look for updates automatically when it is not shown that there are any updates.

I am running Daryna btw.

This is some kind of bug and it's being investigated now. It has to do with running as root or normal user.
Probably not to hard to fix.
If you open it you can always search for updates
And this is not the case always...
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
