View Full Version : [ubuntu] Using conky to check avaliable updates for ubuntu

February 1st, 2009, 08:43 PM
I've found this script - http://www.box-look.org/content/show.php/Conky+Debian+Available+Updates?content=95218 - to use with conky. It works but has the draw back of requiring administrative privileges. Other than running conky with sudo, what is there to be done ?

No ideas ?

you have to edit the sudoers file with

sudo visudo

and give yourself the privilege of using sudo without a password. should be around line 20. at least it is in linux mint.
