The default updater, or mintupdate ?

if you run:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /etc/sudoers.d/mintupdate
the output should be similar to:-

-r--r----- 1 root root 180 Jun 20 08:40 mintupdate

If it has anything other than "root root" .. then follow the instructions below:-

Right-click on the shield system tray icon and select "Quit"

Now run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge mintupdate
then
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/Desktop/MintUpdate
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/MintUpdate
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/mintupdate_4.6.7%2Bpeppermint5_all.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Now run
Code: [Select]
ls -l /etc/sudoers.d/mintupdate
again,and check for the "root root"

That seems to be working.  I received an update and both the Mintupdate and Peppermint update showed up.  The basically corresponded with each other.  I installed the update via the Peppermint updater.  Strange how now that after installing the Mintupdater, the Peppermint updater also decides to function.

Yeah that is kinda silly but Mine is now working also after the mint updater was installed...  However mine disagree and I did what mark suggested and updated using mint then see what is left over and there is like 12 files totaling 2.5 megs leftover...

Yeah, its weird the way the Peppermint updater suddenly sprang into life after installing the Mint one. I'm wondering if the discrepancies in file size could because different mirrors are being used to source the repos.  My Peppermint updates come from a local server here in The Netherlands.  I don't know where the Mint ones are being sourced from  :-\.

I've just noticed something odd.  Since I installed mintupdate for testing.  I just noticed the network monitor icon has vanished from the panel.  I only noticed it was gone because I was going to use a VPN.  It was fine yesterday.  I rebooted the machine and it is still not present.  I don't know if this is related to the mintupdate package or if it coincidental.  Kind of useful to have it back though  :).

mintupdate should be using the same sources as update-mamanger

/etc/apt/sources.list
and any files at
/etc/apt/sources.list.d



AndyInMokum .. when you have no network-manager icon, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ps aux | grep [n]m-applet

Hi Mark, on checking both update-manager and mintupdate are using mirrors here in The Netherlands.  It was just a thought  :-\.  The output you requested is short and sweet - nada, not a sausage:
Code: [Select]
andy@AMILO-Li3710 ~ $ ps aux | grep [n]m-applet
andy@AMILO-Li3710 ~ $

Let's see what happens if we put a 10 second delay in the starting of mintupdate

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/xdg/autostart/mintupdate.desktop
find the line that reads:-
Code: [Select]
Exec=mintupdate-launcher
and change it to
Code: [Select]
Exec=bash -c "sleep 10 ; mintupdate-launcher"
SAVE the file

Log off/on to test

does nm-applet start now ?
