By default, antiX does not automatically notify users of any available updates.
The main reason for this is because we empower the user to take control of their computer experience.
There are several existing ways to manually check and apply updates.
1. Using synaptic (full versions of antiX ship with synaptic)
2. Using the command line
sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade
3. Using apt-notifier (2 steps required)
This will place a notification icon on the toolbar/taskbar and inform users of any updates.
Step 1: Install the package
sudo apt update && sudo apt install apt-notifier
Step 2: Edit /home/username/.desktop-session/startup file by removing the # like this
# Uncomment after installing apt-notifier
Logout and login and you should see an icon in the toolbar/taskbar.
