Installed qt-update-notifier on a test installation of KDE 32bit MiniMe.
I guess the issue with the program going under "file tools" should be already fixed.
On first run, I get the message in the tooltip "waiting for 5 minutes before checking for updates"
Can this be changed at this stage? (maybe by editing the file ~/.config/qt-update-notifier/qt-update-notifier.interval)
I waited those 5 minutes and let the program do its thing.
According to the log, the check was performed, updates were found but no indication in the system tray.
Tooltip only says: "next update check will be on..."
After that, I selected "check for updates" by right-clicking on the icon.
Icon turned to something that looks like a cloud.
After about 20 seconds, tooltip changes to: "there are updates in the repository"
The icon doesn't change to reflect this change in the status, nor there is a notification about available updates.
But if I left-click on it, it changes to a "UN" icon.
Again, with right-click, I selected "open Synaptic" and performed a system update.
After that, I did a new "check for update" with qt-update-notifier and correctly showed no updates found.
These are my first notes on the program.
If you would like me to make more tests or look for something in particular, please ask.
And one question: can custom icons be used with this notifier?
If yes, I could make some suggestions if you are interested.
