pyupdatesd: Updatebenachrichtungen für XFCE

Noah Petherbridge hat auf der Fedora Xfce-Liste ein Skript vorgestellt, welches die Updatebenachrichtigungen von PackageKit unter Gnome nachbildet, da es seit dem Umstieg auf Gnome 3 kein PackageKit Applet mehr für GTK2 basierte Desktops wie Xfce oder LXDE gibt.

Petherbridge stellt das Skript sowohl in einer Python- als auch in einer Perl-Variante auf seiner Homepage zu Download bereit. Weiterhin regt er an, das Skript auch in zukünftige Versionen des Xfce-Spins von Fedora zu integrieren.

Eine erweiterte Version der Python-Variante, welche bereits beim Aufruf nach Updates sucht, gibt es bei uns.

#!/usr/bin/env python

"""
pyupdatesd: A simple yum update checker.

This script will watch for available yum updates and show a Gtk2 tray icon and
notification pop-up when updates become available.

This is intended for desktop environments like XFCE that don't have a native
PackageKit update watcher.

Set this script to run on session startup, and it will check for updates every
15 minutes (by default; this is configurable in the source code).

This software is open domain and may be freely modified and distributed.

Requires: pygtk2

  1. Note that there is a replacement for the PackageKit Applet available at https://gitorious.org/opensuse/pk-update-icon which is used by the openSUSE Xfce/LXDE desktops. In contrast to this hack, it is written in C and actually makes use of the PackageKit API and thus consumes much less memory while supporting any distribution that makes use of PackgeKit.
