Description:

The Muon Package Management Suite is a collection of several package management tools based on the QApt package management library for Debian-based systems.

The suite includes the three main applications.

The Muon Package Manager is a powerful package manager aimed towards the intermediate - power-user range. It offers complete control over your packages with an interface that still keeps usability in mind.

The Muon Software Center is an easy to use way to install (or remove) new applications without having to worry about package management. Aimed towards the average user, anyone can use the Muon Software Center to search for applications to meet their needs (or wants)

The Muon Updater is a system update GUI. In conjunction with the Muon update notifier, the Muon Updater will help keep your system up-to-date.




Changelog:

Muon Suite 1.1.2 fixes a serious bug exposed by a regression in KDE 4.6.2

A full changelog for Muon 1.1.2 can be found here: https://projects.kde.org/news/47

 dependencies

 
 by mschnide on: Jan 17 2011
 
Score 21%

Too much dependencies to install on other distros.
I tried to install on Debian.

There are needed:
libdebconf-...
libqapt...
qapt...

These are non standard libraries!
In this case muon does not need to be here. muon is in the ubuntu-repositories. Why should somebody download it here?

I really don't see what the problem here is. The install size of all three of these packages is only a little over 0.5 MiB. You can install all of Muon and it's "unstandard dependencies" for less than 2 MiB of disk space.

i've found a debian repo:
deb http://88.153.34.94/repo/ sid main

if address's changed will be reported somewhere. (probably here:

Thank you very much for this software. Muon is a fantastic package manager.

I have only one issue:

The Muon update notifier will simply not work for me. The service is running, but it don't show a symbol in system tray, when updates are available.

Any idea why? I`m running Maverick and Muon comes from your ppa.

Hmm, does the file "/var/lib/update-notifier/updates-available" exist? Either way, does running "sudo touch /var/lib/update-notifier/updates-available" make the popup show up?

Yes, this file exist,but it´s empty.

>>> does running "sudo touch /var/lib/update-notifier/updates-available" make the popup show up? <<<

No, sadly no popup!

Edit: Today I have refreshed the sources and there were 8 Updates. I have not done the update, I have done a restart. After the restart Muon have shown the update notifier symbol & a information massage.

Apparently it works for me only after a reboot and not during the session !?!

That's weird. The notifier looks for that file's timestamp to change, and manually doing so via touch should do that.

The notifier checks if it should show the popup manually on startup, so that explains why it works there. I really don't know why it's not seeing any changes to the file... :(

Not so important, everything else is working. My hope is that does work, when I update to Natty in a few months ;-)

This is https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264001 and it has been fixed for Muon Suite 1.1.1.

In the future, please use bugs.kde.org for reports, thanks. :)

I didn't feel how's it different from Synaptic. I also didn't like update & software managers.

I couldn't configure update manager to update only specific kinds of packages. I really don't want to update my kernel. I also couldn't change update frequency.

Software manager can't queue tasks. So first I have to wait hell long after clicking "install" while soft is "waiting" (what is Muon doing? Downloading? Waiting for server response?) I didn't know about this feature, so I went through a list of soft and checked several points, only to be notified later that only Banshee was installed and be thrown out into starting software list. Also, it would be very useful to highlight installed software in total software list.

I liked several software view options, however there's lacking a view by category. It's useful for installed soft as well as uninstalled.

I love the Muon Suite, finally allowed me to dump synaptic!

Do you plan on adding user reviews like the Ubuntu Natty software center is getting? http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/01/ubuntu-10-10-software-center-to-get-ratings-and-reviews-on-feb-11th/

Thanks!

Yes, that is definitely in the works. In Git I have Muon Software Center getting its "star" rating data from the Ubuntu review website like the Software Center does. I'm close to getting read-only support for reviews working, too.

Submitting reviews will probably take a bit more work, but I do plan on implementing that also.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
