Thread: Suse updater Applet gone

    Default Suse updater Applet gone

    I have uninstalled kde4 and am now back to 3.5, the suse automatic updater applet has gone missing.
    I can find the kde4 version in the repositories, but not the version for 3.5.
    Could anyone tell me, how to get it back?

    Thanks

    PS: I'm running Suse 11

    The version you found is the only kde updater applet. It only depends on
    libkde4, not on the full KDE4 desktop. You can install and use it
    under KDE3.

    Kind regards,

    That was great that you had your question resolved.

    I only saw your post listed because I have a different problem, tried doing searches for threads talking about the version 10.3 I'm using right now, and I'd upgrade to 11.1 but I'm all out of CDs and DVDs that I can burn an ISO image to, so unless I can upgrade to 11.1 via a network install without burning an ISO image to the CD/DVD, like say a Live desktop ISO image for example, or unless I can install via an external hard drive which I have, I'll have to wait until I have the money to buy more CDs or DVDs that I can burn an ISO image to.

    Hmm...That's an idea...I'm wondering if I could "burn" an ISO image to the external hard drive, and do an install via that, but I suppose that wouldn't be possible or I suppose that wouldn't work.

    I suppose that I could do a network install, but then I'll have to look for the address of the server so the network install would work, but I usually like to have it on CD/DVD, so if something "funny" occurs, I can re-install it for example.

    Anyway I received no results looking for "SUSE 10.3," but did see your post at the top of the list when I did a search for "SUSE Updater."

    I actually closed it by accident one time, but when I turned the computer on of course it loaded back in.

    Now back to looking for a solution to my SUSE Updater problem.

    I'm going to search through the threads now to see if it has been answered already somewhere, but my problem is that I see the security update(s) that is/are available, with the "Red Triangle" showing, but after going through the installation process, the Updater says that there's an update available, but it's the same update that I already installed.

    I tried to even reboot the computer, and have tried unchecking the "Automatic Refresh" box in the repository listings, along with other things, but the updater still does it, says that there's an update, or updates, available, but it's the same update(s) I just installed.

    Well off to look and see if my problem has been discussed, resolved, or otherwise addressed somewhere.

    Have a Great Day,
    Bernard

    I have corrected my "Auto-Updater" problem in OpenSUSE 10.3 by clicking on "Patch CD Update," instead of on "Software Management," and then, after seeing the patches listed out, and after checking the boxes next to the patches that were in Red, and installing those, my problem disappeared.

    The OpenSUSE Updater now doesn't show any updates available.

    However, I'm wondering if something else I have done is the right thing to do or not, or whether it's going to be "harmful" to my system, and that is I also have clicked on the "Automatic online update," chose a 10 pm daily time for these automatic updates and have left the "Skip Interactive Patches" box checked, but wonder if I should uncheck that box or not, or whether I need to do manual checks with the Updater, or whether the updater will show the availability of "Interactive" updates having the Automatic Updates set the way it is now.

    Have a Great Day,
    Bernard
