Debian Jessie and update notification

Postby mikef90000 » Mon Apr 27, 2015 12:00 am

I've been looking at LXDE on the new Debian stable and have discovered that update-manager and the associated notifier have been dropped. Apparently other DEs (say GNOME and KDE) integrate a DE specific notifier which can work with multiple package managers (deb, rpm).

Have I overlooked an LXDE specific one? :?:

FYI I tracked down a relatively new lightweight app named apt-notifier that seems to work on LXDE and XFCE4. It can be downloaded from the MX / MEPIS community repository at; in the same repo are dependencies yad and gtkdialog that must be installed first.
Use the panel, Luke!
