No notifications for upgrades

I’ve installed Plasma for the kids computer. I dont use pamac, so I dont get notifications when there are upgrades, I just run yay every few days. How do I get notifications for upgrades?

You can install an update notifier but, personally, I don’t see any point in it.

There are updates every day. Just update when you can.

In plasma, installing packagekit-qt5 it will enable the built-in plasma notifier.

Or use eos-update-notifier - it has added capabilities (like showing you relevant Arch news if needed, and handling AUR package updates too. Just saying :grin:
