getting notified of updates in xfce
I scoured through synaptic and google trying to find if there was a package that would allow getting notified of updates in xfce.
I saw one possible solutions as xfapplet, but it appears to be only available in squeeze and sid.
I finally cobbled together my own solution this morning:
Any other solutions that exist right now for wheezy that I missed? Thanks...
I don't use XFCE on a regular basis, but I think you can use update-notifier on XFCE (at least, it worked last time I tried). Once you've installed it you will probably have to add it to the startup XFCE services.
Thanks, odiseo. I found update-notifier under the section Gnome Desktop Environment and it only needed a few deps so I installed it. Then I went to settings -> session and startup -> application autostart and saw it in the list and auto-magically checked.
I would expect that will work, so I'm going to mark the thread solved.
