It seems reasonable and doable. :)
I even suggest something along the lines of "When you are finished updating, you should now close this window and restart USM for the updates to be incorporated".
Cheers!

SCNR. But USM improvement makes me a happy camper. :D


Anyhow, where do you post that a new USM version is available? In here? (As in: this very thread)
Cheers!

If USM is being tweaked, changing the name of the USM Cancel button to Close should be considered. :)

Thanks guys. Found a slight variation in the PACKAGES.TXT which was generated on 21/9/2015 which other slacks don't have. Perhaps the method changed in the way the files are generated. I have located the associated code in USM but I want to fix a few other thing before pushing another update. If you want a quick fix please download the file below and replace it in /usr/share/usm

Code: Select all

wget --no-check-certificate https://raw.githubusercontent.com/brokenman/usm/master/funcpackageGet
EDIT: Thanks for the typo correction Ed_P

Ahhh. I just set it up as an alias in my ~/.bashrc file. Haven't typed it for a while.

Updated to 3.1.9. Fixed some minor bugs. Hopefully didn't break anything further.

Thank you brokenman. :good:

Code: Select all

The default is 3 hours
 Please restart the application to refreshthe database.
A suggestion, put a space after the word refresh. :)

BTW At one time to copy & paste from the USM Terminal window ctrl+shift+C and ctrl+shift+V worked. viewtopic.php?t=3205&p=27087#p27077 But not now. Fortunately ctrl+insert & shift+insert still work.

Thanks. I seem to be making many typos lately.

An alias is like an old school macro. If you open a terminal and type:
alias printit='echo "This is like a macro"'
printit

You will see that it prints this sentence. Now if you put these lines in your ~/.bashrc file then log out and login you should have them available in all shells that you open. The alias I was talking about was:
alias wget='wget --no-check-certificate --trust-server-names'

Interesting. Thanks.

Does the creating of an alias automatically create the .bachrc file? hmmm No, I think I manually create it then add the alias to it. Can other commands be added to it, other than aliases? hmmmm Think I will Google bachrc and see what pops.

Thank you brokenman. :friends:

The file already exists and already has aliases.
cat ~/.bashrc

Any command you add here will be run on login. Please start a new thread for more info. Thanks.

graphical USM does not know its updated.
##########################

Hi I am new to Porteus using the XFCE v3.1 x86_64 iso as both a hard drive install and to an USB stick and tested on both.

Details for others to duplicate if interested
1) Original v 3.1.7 for a clean install
2) open the app and click on updates and update for USM and wait for response
3) it downloads and says you are on v 3.1.9 and restart app
4) restart app and you can repeat above process.

I thought an image might help?

Image

Incidently, in case it helps

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt/sda3/porteus/changes/tmp/usm# ls
usm-latest-0.0-noarch-1.txz
I hope this is easy to solve.

Yes I know I am on the latest. I am reporting that USM does not know I am on the latest

trivial question....am I supposed to move that txz to modules or something?
EDIT, rebooted after converting to xzm and version is OK
trivial question (2) Why not have a version number in that txz?
