• A tool everybody should use - kalu


    Hello folks,

    I just discovered kalu a pretty handy and useful tool. If you didn’t hear about it you should check it out.
    It’s simpy a daemon watching and checking for Arch updates. You get notifications for installed packages and even for the AUR.
    You can also set packages to a watchlist and get a notification if there is an upgrade available.
    And of course you can just right click it and choose “System Upgrade”, for those who don’t want to “sudo pacman -Syu” twice a day
    Check it out!

    You can install it through the AUR with

    yaourt -S kalu
    

    Cheers

  • I use [b:1kd9muln]yaourt -Syu[/b:1kd9muln] instead of [i:1kd9muln]pacman -Syu [/i:1kd9muln]

    Don't forget to mark as [SOLVED], if your problem was solved!

    That command is the same thing as pacman -Syu. Perhaps what you really want is this:

    yaourt -Syua
    

    Cheers!

    You are always better then me!

    Thanks the letter ‘a’

  • I’m interested in knowing about possible future update breakage. Where is the zero hour info on arch updates that will bring newbies to tears? I’ve only had problems with catalyst as far as nasty breakage.

    EDIT: kalu is awesome much better than the octopi notifier!

    Do unt…

  • Any serious breakage would be posted on Arch’s home page. Many of the available pacman wrappers include methods of viewing such announcements. PacmanXG displays them as well.

    Cheers!

  • Hello I installed[b:22pdrxjh] kalu [/b:22pdrxjh] and i have a doubt. When the system is updated with the option [b:22pdrxjh]“system upgrade”[/b:22pdrxjh], the packages from [b:22pdrxjh]aur[/b:22pdrxjh] also upgrade…or I have to check the next option [b:22pdrxjh](screenshot)[/b:22pdrxjh], i added the line:

    xterm -e -Syu --aur
