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.

I found a bug in KPackageKit that occurs when using any style that does not draw a background gradient. When clicking a package, the info pane is not redrawn properly. Here's a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/TwR61.png. Resizing or moving the window causes it to update correctly, but this is a bit tedious. :\
Thanks, by the way, for all your work on KPackageKit. It's given me faith that I might see the day Kubuntu's package manager is on par with Ubuntu's. :D

 Notify about dependencies

The KPackageKit is a very good application.

Would be great if it notify the user about the dependecies and not just mark them.

I'm using the KPackagekit on Ubuntu 10.04, sorry if this feature already was done.

Yes, it does, but by default on Kubuntu it does not display unless there are packages to be removed.
If you want to see them all the time go to KPackageKit settings and check "Show confirmation Dialog when installing/updating"
Best.

 Automatic cache refresh

Should kpackagekit automatically refresh the package cache every Hour/Day/Week/Month according to the setting? Because here it never does.
Currently I have it set to check for updates every hour but if I go to the history page it says the last cache update was more than two hours ago. I've been testing this for over a week waiting for whole days without success.
If I run 'pkcon refresh' everything works fine, the kpackagekit icons suddenly appear in the tray bar.
Thanks for your help!

I think it would be helpful to show the total size after installation of selected packages and the ones needed because of dependencies, before You start the download. When You are running out of space on you disk, it is an important matter to be able to check if You have enough space to install the selected packages.

I'm working on this but as PackageKit does not provide that info I can't instantly add this feature, but I'm about to add this to PackageKit itself hopefully PackageKit 0.7.1 or .2 will have it :D

 I hope you continue your project

I saw that Kubuntu 11.10 will ship Muon (or Gluon or how it is called) as software management and I consider it a regression, it is too freeky and geeky and its user interface is more like the classical kpackage was and not good!

You should definitly continue your project and improve it. I don’t know if this is possible but I saw Ubuntu package management has rating and comment function (I think) and this would really be nice for KPackagekit, or Apper how it is called soon hopefully :)
So we have a “Linux Market Place” and THIS is what people know from their smartphones and definitly want on their desktop.

Yes thanks, I got sad when I hear the news (expecially because nobody talked to me about that).
But don't worry Apper is going to be developed and improved further, currently it's the only Package manager available to all major distros out there (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, openSuse and more).
keep an eye on my blog soon I'll be posting news about the new features and the feature of Apper.
Best.

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.
