When I switched to GNOME, via the Leap 15.0 Beta a couple of months ago, my update notifications stopped appearing. I get them for everything else though.
I was merely wondering if Leap 15.0 Beta/RC is currently set up to be getting update notifications, when they become available. I have all the pk packages, etc., installed; and the OS settings (via GNOME Tweaks) are geared up for receiving updates.
Having to check for updates manually is fine; but if there is something I should have added or enabled, then I wanted to find out.
Am currently running a LEAP 15/LXQt, and it’s getting update notifications… Although not promptly. Unlike my other machines which normally display notifications fairly soon after booting, I’ve noticed that LEAP 15 update notifications don’t show up for… maybe 10 minutes or so, speculating that’s only due to debugging code in Beta code.
Apparently GNOME’s update notifications were disabled by default, a fix is on the way.
You should be able to enable them yourself by setting the gsettings key “org.gnome.software.download-updates” accordingly.
I’m not using GNOME nor have any experience with gsettings, but I think this should do:
gsettings set org.gnome.software download-updates true
“Apparently GNOME’s update notifications were disabled by default, a fix is on the way.”
I read on the bug report, you sent me, that - just today - a request was forwarded to get that =FALSE fix in place. With all of my installed pk equipment - including the pk-update-icon, I’m hoping that the new fix will eventually stream in and do its thing. You’re spot on, though, I chose not to muck up my vanilla GNOME with stuff I don’t use - and gnome-software was one of those quasi staples I purposely left out of the build.
