“Check For Updates” Will Be Displayed on G-C-C, Only If..


Check for updates” button will be visible in G-C-C (GNOME Control Center) only if you have installed GNOME Software or “gpk-update-viewer” which is part of “gnome-packagekit-updater” package -the PackageKit UI; the predecessor of gSoftware.

The patch came from Antoine Jacoutot and Bastien Nocera pushed it on master.

info: Conditionally display the “Check for updates” button

When neither gnome-software nor gpk-update-viewer are available, it does not make sense to display the “Check for updates” button.

Not something important but it shows the efforts of GNOME to respect other desktops & more distros, on upstream level. Even in the very core GNOME Modules there are many guards to check if they are running outside of GNOME, e.g Ubuntu.

  We can't watch comments unless G+ provides an API or if you send a notification, e.g +World Of Gnome
