Description:

Apper is the KDE interface for PackageKit (aka KPackageKit)

Apper is able to manage packages, applications and updates in a cross-distribution way thanks to the PackageKit project. Providing Linux users a single application that they can learn and use in whatever distribution they are.

Hope you enjoy Apper, and please report bugs, make wishes so we can improve this application.

Something with this app is wrong, I'm trying to add a script that creates snapshots before each update, I do this by adding entries to DPT :: Post-Invoke and APT :: Upgrade :: Invoke APT. Unfortunately it does not work! Why is this program not sticking to standards? So that you could add some option to the program so that you can do something like that.

Hey, I really like this program! :-)
I'm using it as a frontend for pacman the package manager of Archlinux and it works great!

However, when Apper shows me the packages with updates in the repository, only the new version on the server is shown. Is it possible to also show the version that is currently installed on my computer? Maybe as an additional column in the list?

Cheers
Johannes

Yes, just right click the updates list and select the column you want.

All that information depends on which distribution are you using.

I'm trying to install it from ports in freebsd 9.2

cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/kpackagekit/ && make install clean

and resolve an error while building dependance port
usr/ports/ports-mgmt/packagekit-qt4/

===>>> This port is marked IGNORE
===>>> does not build with Qt 4.8

What can I do to resolve this issue ?

Sorry I don't know how to use ports or what does that error mean, but kpackagekit means that you are trying to use an old version since it was renamed to Apper long ago...

Would be cool if I could do like:

apper --search mplayer

..and apper opens up and does a package search.

yumex has a present possibility though it already also is not supported but is in many Linux distribution kits. Yes here the question on Apper why takes off an error if I want to look at packets in group, to the 20th version of Fedora everything normally worked??

You can do that using pkcon :D

Well as an openSUSE user I'd directly use zypper for that..

Having results come up in apper would be nice though, because you can click, browse, get detailed info, and install using nice GUI. :)

With Apper 0.7.2 I can't install package files, from the browser or e.g. from command line:

apper ./google-earth-stable_current_i386.rpm

This doesn't work, but this works:

pkcon install-local ./google-earth-stable_current_i386.rpm

By investigating on the backend (smart) it seems to me that it is not its fault, because it is not getting the package(s) file name as install-files option. pkcon works, so I tried to investigate on Apper but I realized that the problem might as well be in libpackagekit-qt2. Thanks for any help.

Hey, I thought I'd make you guys aware that there's a slight visual bug with the description box when using QTCurve (or possibly, when not using the Oxygen widget style; I haven't tested any other styles to know if it does this outside QTCurve). You can see the difference here:

http://imgur.com/a/S3Iwn

I've confirmed this to happen on both Kororaa 17 and OpenSuSE 12.1 so it most likely isn't distro-specific. If I switch the widget style back to Oxygen, Apper returns to its normal functionality, but then swapping to QTCurve again causes it to reoccur. A fix for this would be great :D

It's a known bug, because other widgets don't repaing the background, it's a bug in the theme engine which should repaint after an animation, which doesn't happen.

Have to say that I really like Apper, first came across it in Fedora 16 but now have it on both my fedora laptop and both my Ubuntu laptops (now sad am I having 4 laptops) Much prefer it over Muon etc.

Thank you for making it

There is impossible to update package if it has not certificate. Appers asks if I sure that want install those packeges, I press "Yes" and it asks again and again, so update never starts.

Everything is possible, files of repo remove a key check (gkg) and not subhand-written packets will be established. However from myself I will notice that installation not of subhand-written packets is dangerous and is bad form. Всё возможно , файлах repo убираете ключ проверка (gkg ) и неподписаные пакеты будут устанавливаться . Однако от себя замечу что установка не подписаных пакетов опасна и являеться дурным тоном.
