How do I automatically close update window?
« on: February 17, 2020, 10:35:40 pm »
(After updating). I recently installed P10 respin (after using P8 respin more many years). I knew how to do this on P8 but I've forgotten.

Hi peppycrab,

Which window are you talking about?  :-\ Do you mean the one when using synaptic package manager? Or another software manager for updating your apps?

The (Peppermint) update manager.

Hi peppycrab,

I'm sorry that I cannot help you on this as I have no experience using the update manager. I use the synaptic package manager. I'm sure some else around here has experience with the update manager and can step in to assist you.

Are you referring to mintupdate @peppycrab? the 4th icon from the right? It should close automagically...

Yes. It used to close automatically, controlled by a setting in software downloading, but I have forgotten where that setting is. I now get "You may close this window now" but I have to do it manually. No big thing, but I'd like to not have to think about it.

I am not sure what would cause the mintupdate to quit closing automagically, so I will scour the forum history. Hopefully someone else will pop in and hand us both a clue @peppycrab?

This has puzzled me, as it automatically closes after updating. I've also looked in the preferences of the update manager and cannot find any settings to switch it off, so puzzled I be.  :-\
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)
