Description:

Apper is the KDE interface for PackageKit (aka KPackageKit)

Apper is able to manage packages, applications and updates in a cross-distribution way thanks to the PackageKit project. Providing Linux users a single application that they can learn and use in whatever distribution they are.

Hope you enjoy Apper, and please report bugs, make wishes so we can improve this application.

BUGS goes to bugs.kde.org

-----------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT:
Apper itself can do nothing without PackageKit.
So have it installed before.
-----------------------------------------------------

Could you please add (better) option for browsing packages like searching inside category(games), and possibly show more information like ubuntu software center does, rating and optional image(icon)?

I've planned to improve the search on the list when there are alread packages there (no time yet),
for the others it's just not possible for now...

This software is not usable by normal user.

Normal users shouldn't be presented with 15 packages when they enter VLC for example.
How the hell should they know what package to install? This is not a power user application nor simple one.

Till you bring back the view by application (http://www.packagekit.org/img/gpk-application-groups.png) that was once in use in the past (by kubuntu) this application will remain useless for most of the people.

So please add the application view to next release.

1. If you don't like seeing 15 vlc related packages complain to your distro.

2. If you want to see GNOME packages just click on the combo box and select GNOME desktop.

FYI Both applications have exactly the same functionality.

well it's not package related since all package managers have dependencies.

And I didn't meant to make a bad comment, but I can't understand why the application view is available in gnome, but not in KDE.

There is no such application view that talks with PackageKit, you are probably confusing with some other application.
That screen shot from gnome packagekit is showing the gnome desktop group... just that...
(which also works in kpk)

hmm ok i understand :/

So how hard would it be to add this feature and is it planned for the future?

It would realy help a lot of people to get used to KDE/Linux.

It would be even better if they make a Kubuntu-version of the Ubuntu Software Center.

 Waiting for service to start?

Hi, I'm working on adopting kpackagekit in the openmamba distribution but when attempting a package upgrade I can go no further than the message "Waiting for service to start" in the "Updating packages" window.
packagekitd is running and installation with pkcon works just fine, as it spawns the password dialog provided by polkit-kde. Looking at the sources I find it difficult to understand which service the program is waiting for...can I get some help on this? Thanks!

The distro is openmamba (milestone2 devel), PackageKit is version 0.6.3, KPackageKit version 0.6.0. PackageKit backend is smart (1.3) which uses apt4rpm style repositories.

About package search in kpk, yes it works and also updates are correctly detected and shown.

I'm having the same issue on Fedora 11. If I close kpackagekit kill the kpackagekitsmar process, then start kpackagekit up again it works again for a while. I have to do this every time it get's stuck "waiting for services to start"

Yeah, it really sucks :P it's a bug in packagekit-qt, I told the author but he didn't fix it yet, after I finish some stuff I'm doing I'll try to fix that myself :D

With version 0.6.1, which I'd like to adopt asaiw (as soon as it works :) ), I don't get the upgrade stuck with this message anymore, but it simply won't do the updates silently.
What's interesting is that if I go to "Add and Remove Software" and choose to install the upgradable packages, it works perfectly. This makes me think that it is an interface or configuration problem, but I don't know how to diagnose this as no error or informative message is displayed.
Do you have any hint for me? Thanks!

This often, but not always, happens to me with Kubuntu 10.04. (kpackagekit 0.5.4-0ubuntu4.3, libpackagekit-qt-12, KDE 4.4.2.)E.g. right now "Simulating the update - " shows "Waiting for service to start", it's been that way for an hour. [Cancel] is grayed out, I have to kill it :-(Often when it's waiting for service to start, it is after the plasma panel has announced upgrades, but I've started KPackageKit myself from Kickoff.What's the service that KPackageKit is waiting for? I've tried `sudo /usr/sbin/packagekitd`, that doesn't help. What's the best way to restart that service in Kubuntu?

 application view

I know a possible way to make the application view in Kpk, You can use the .desktop files in the app-install-data directory to filter the package list showing only those that have Type=Application in it. I was looking the kpk source code but i am very new in qt programation and i can't understand enought well and I need learn some more qt for do that.

Hail to all!
I would like to try the new release of KpackageKit, cause it seems really awesome! "Applications" was a feature I was really waiting for!

BUT...

i get the following error while compiling sources:

I've installed on my machine all libpackagekit-* packages.
I've got Kubuntu 10.04 with KDE 4.5.1...

any idea? anyone got the same error?

Yes, you need packagekit-qt >= 0.6.8 which is and won't be available at Kubuntu 10.4, but Kubuntu 10.10 already has the lastest packages.

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.
