mintUpdate 1.5 released!

Postby clem » Tue Oct 16, 2007 4:48 am

mintUpdate 1.5 comes with the following new features:

- Customized Icons. You can now change the icons used by the mintUpdate system tray by going in the preferences window: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/mintup ... ences-icon

It also comes with some code clean-up (configuration files and icons are now in separate folders) and it fixes the following bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/mintupdate/+bug/152910

You can get the debs for it here:

http://linuxmint.com/repository/daryna/ ... 5_i386.deb
http://linuxmint.com/repository/daryna/ ... 0_i386.deb
http://linuxmint.com/repository/daryna/ ... 0_i386.deb

It should be compatible with Cassandra and Celena.

And as usual, you're more than welcome to give us your comments and feedback on this.

MintUpdate is also using Launchpad for bug tracking, translations, blueprints and answers... so if you want to:

- report bugs
- ask questions
- write blueprints for new features
- help translating

Go to http://www.launchpad.net/mintUpdate and get involved with this project.

I've got 1.4, and when I install 1.5 I get "same package already installed". Synaptic shows I already have 1.5 as well. What am I missing here?

Well holy damn that went smoothly! After installing the packages I re-started mintUpdate and voila. Nice work!

mint update 1.4

Postby gollum1971 » Tue Oct 16, 2007 11:09 am

Hi Clem.

Dunno if I have missed the boat on this one but, I installed the 1.4 version and it broke my network manager as someone else described with a earlier version.

So am re-installing on my machine as i type.
Not really a problem as i partitioned my home folder (Thank god)

Just thought I'd let you know.

Cheers

Aiden

Nice release. =) Great option to use other icons. Maybe I will create my own icon-set.

Clem, why not put further releases into the repos?

Clem,

I installed Celena 3.1 last week. I did a completely clean installation, including my /home partition. I've been playing a lot so there was really nothing to keep anyway :)

I used mintUpdate 1.4 all this past weekend and had no problems.

This morning, after quitting mintUpdate 1.4, I updated to 1.5, rebooted.... and mintUpdate 1.5 has yet to succesfully refresh. Instead, the pad lock on the tool bar changes to a broken icon.

Any ideas as to why 1.4 worked and 1.5 won't? Thanks!

ElEdwards: check the tooltip on the broken icon and go to /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/logs and do "ls -lrt" and look in the file that appears at the bottom.. that will give you more info.

Phew! You keep pumpin' these out, eh?
I sure do wish mintUpdate would update itself... :roll:

Anyways, great job! Smooth, as always. ;)

ElementalTJ: It would if you pointed your sources.list at "deb http://www.linuxmint.com/repository daryna/" but beware of the fact that it's not considered a stable repository yet... things are moving a lot in there.

I created a fantastic "Mint" icon theme for mintupdate. How can I upload this to here? You guys will love it once you see it! :-) If anyone messages me, I'll send them the icons.

*** Edit ***
Uploaded to gnome-look.org...enjoy!

I installed 1.5, relogged and my panel was a mess, so I restarted and all was good. Thanks Clem! Now I can update it, like I stole it!

Clem,
Why does this application ask for a root password only once during a session and then never again, regardless of how much time passes? Did you design it that way? (not complaining, just wondering.) Seems like root privileges should expire after say ten minutes.

cmost: Because when you give it the password it actually launches a new mintUpdate as root and kills the one you were precedently running... so from there on you're running it in root mode.

HI Peeps :D

Really love Linux Mint. Thanks for unplugging me :)

Ive been getting the broken lock myself I did the above and got this in my latest log...

* Launching mintUpdate in root mode
starting refresh
auto-refresh timer is going to sleep for 5 minutes
performing apt-get update
Exception occured in the refresh thread: Failed to fetch cdrom:[APTonCD for ubuntu feisty - i386 (2007-10-09 01:08) DVD1]/Packages.gz Please use apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot be used to add new CD-ROMs

It seems to be looking for apt on cd. Can I make it stop?

You need to edit your sources: "gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list".

Remove the lines (or comment them by prefixing the line with a #) saying "cdrom".

Then save and close the file. Then refresh mintUpdate.
