KDE Plasma Software Updater for openSUSE Tumbleweed

Tumbleweed Updater is a KDE plasmoid for openSUSE Tumbleweed that uses zypper as backend to check and install available software updates.

Click on the button below to install the package with 1-click install:

1 Click Install

After installation you need to logout from the KDE plasma session and re-login to enable the applet, it is recommended to disable the old updater applet to avoid interference problems.

Tumbleweed Updater features:

  • configurable updates check interval
  • desktop notifications
  • interactive EULA agreements
  • interactive package conflicts resolution
  • option to auto agree with licenses
  • option to auto resolve package conflicts
  • screen locker and suspend are disabled during updates to avoid possible problems

The plasma widget works as a frontend to zypper command line program, so if plasmashell crashes during the update process, zypper will continue to run and the applet will try to resume its connection with zypper.

In case of problems you'll be able to run the command

screen -r twupdater-zypper-dup

to access the session where zypper is running.

The software is released under the GPL 2 license and is in beta stage, you can report bugs or submit feature requests using the contact form.
