View Full Version : [ubuntu] Google Chrome automatic update only Ubuntu 8.04.4Setup

April 4th, 2010, 03:18 AM
I'm trying to setup Ubuntu 8.04.4 for an elderly person to whom I'm not going to have access after the setup.

I'd like to setup Software Sources in such a way that only Google Chrome (pretty much the only application to be used) is to be updated automatically.

With Software Sources>Updates> Ubuntu Updates all unchecked but Automatic Updates still enabled, I assume only the apps from Third-Party Software (where Google repository is listed) are going to take part in an Automatic Update. Is this correct? Thanks in advance.

I think the opposite is true but it must be possible to auto-update 3rd party repositories somehow: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1401845
