This first version is interesting.

I started the test, but I have not installed any update because I would choose the updates to install (if I understand correctly, the utility does not allow it).

For users, it would be interesting to add a Help button.

Regards

Hi linus.cl,

Using Precise 5.6 with your code to update my 5 data bases (which I hadn't done for many months) it took at most 10 seconds from a click start to the small screen shot.

Clicking OK produced the larger screen shot.

I trust all is as expected.

My regards and thanks

Thank you for your suggestion!
You are not able to choose packages yet, all packages will be installed.

Thank you!

But the packages also must be updated! Do you see some error code?
Have you looked in the terminal?
Try to wait a little bit!

I know you have to click so much!! Rolling Eyes Very Happy
First you see the installed packages, then the avaible packages and the installed packages...

You can change the repositories: Change the download location in updatepuppy.sh!

Hi linus.cl,

Thank you for your helpful explanation.

This time, when I reached the very long list of packages which could be automatically updated en bloc - I found the list to be most informative and impressively interesting, but, for now, I chickened out of the full update (though I may just set up recovery precautions so I can finalise my trial - I'll report back if I do that).

My regards

Download the newest version at the first post.

Does somebody know how to add a checkbox to the program??

Thanks

Hi linus.cl et al,

This is a terrific idea, but, I believe, it needs refining.

I suggest that, at least for now, testers have a back-up.

Importantly, I did not find a way to stop the final process which seemed to want to install everything regardless of my actions.

Unimportantly, the progress bar shot to 20%, then after long gap went to 60% then after a few more minutes to 100%.

My regards

Yes, that's important. But I don't know which kind of back-up do you mean.

Why? When I tried the program it works.

For example:
Code:

Xdialog --title "Packages with a new version:" --textbox "/tmp/packages-newversion" 0 0
case $? in
    1)
    echo "Exit...Bye!"
    exit;;
    255)
    echo "Exit...Bye!"
    exit;;

Yes, this must be better.
