Projects / Kslackcheck


Kslackcheck keeps in sync changelogs and shows updates in a graphical popup in KDE, with just one click. It can tell users what packages in need to be upgraded for major releases, and helps to download them to a particular directory ready for manual upgrading.

      Release Notes: Slacklogo menu installation has been fixed. The Slovak translation has been updated, and a Deutsch translation added. The popup style has changed, moving from kdialog to a knotify DCOP call. Another bugfix has been made in proxy connections, which should now work as expected.

        Release Notes: According to the new -current layout, KDE binaries and related files have been moved to /usr instead of /opt, which would also work in official Slackware releases. There is a fix for proxy connection: this release tires to find proxy settings in wgetrc, and for now the default mode is a proxy connection without authentication. To obtain authentication, just set new value in PROXYAUTH in kslackcheck.conf.
