LXer: Addendum Ubuntu 8.04 - Pseudo Root User

Published at LXer:

In my last article on this topic, I gave a detailed description how I activated the update-notifier process on a non-privileged user's desktop. I fully expected to see updates notices appear on that desktop as I had on the older 6.06 version. After an extended period no update icon appeared, I became suspicious. I ran some tests that indicated, indeed, no updates were needed. Hence, I was given a false sense of confidence, when the reality was I ran the wrong tests. I later learned that while I had seen the update-notifier running as a process once, it was not active on the unprivileged user's desktop upon a fresh startup. Therefore, my efforts were ineffective.
