Updates, Security and KDE

Postby GeordieJedi » Mon Mar 26, 2012 10:35 pm

Hi all.

OK, Ive scoured Google and a couple of other forums but I cant find what I'm after.
(I'm sure It's easy and I'm just missing something obvious !)

How do I get security/OS updates in KDE ?
(The equivalent of update manager in Gnome)

I've looked all over and nothing seems to to stand out?

I've installed Ubuntu 11.10 and I'm currently testing KDE as my new DE/WM.
I've installed from the LXF cover disc (LXF #152).

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Have you installed the meta-package kubuntu-desktop or have you just installed KDE?

Do you have KPackageKit? Look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repos ... d_later.29

my kubuntu just pops up from time to time saying there are updates
For certain you have to be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was

I always cheat.

Code: Select all
sudo bash


Code: Select all
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get clean && apt-get autoclean && apt-get autoremove
