    Default Updater doesn't show

    Yesterday I have installed openSUSE 11 on my friend PC
    But I have noticed that updater shows only two times and after updating it is not showing up
    In "software installer" (in updates sections) there are few updates but update applet is not showing them so I have to check for updates manually

    Try starting it with 'opensuseupdater-kde' from the CLI. You can right-click on the icon, and select 'Configure Applet..', then make sure 'Automatically start updater on login' is enabled. I assume its 'opensuseupdater-gnome' for that other DE.

    You wern't asked to. I just told you how to restart it. If using Gnome, try 'opensuseupdater-gnome'. Configure as before.

    Code:
    bash: opensuseupdater-gnome: command not found
    Code:
    bash: opensuseupdater-kde: command not found
    I try as normal and super user...
    It's because it is new installation, 4 days ago when I install suse after clean install updater shows me 1 update (zypper), but after clean install yesterday it has installed 6-7 updates

    I experienced this myself, the updater applet 'went away'. Seems there was
    an update and it was inadvertently uninstalled.

    To fix:

    (as root, in a terminal)

    zypper install kde4-opensuse-updater

    Yes, it SAYS 'kde4'... it won't hurt you.

    Once that finishes, close that terminal.

    In a terminal, as YOUR user.... type:

    opensuseupdater-kde

    which will restart the applet. Check the config options and make sure the
    'start this applet automatically' is checked.

    You shouldn't have an issue after this.

    Loni

    (Yes, he could have typed 'exit'.. but if he forgot, he'd start the app as
    root and it wouldn't work properly NEXT time... remember, this person is not
    as experienced as some.)

    Based on your previous answers, I get the feeling you didn't follow the
    instructions, since unless you got an error during those instructions, your
    updater would be working.

    My apologies, but I cannot help you if you won't try.

    Good Idea. Automatic wholesale updates can cause problems for many users.

    Is there any alternative openSUSE updater?
    Playing devil's advocate here, but you could look at the smart package manager. It has a system tray utility for KDE:

    smart
    smart-gui
    smart-ksmarttray

    For most users zypper, yast online update and yast software manager more than suffice.
