Update of EOS-update-notifier requires a little manual intervention

Caused by some changes on i3-wm we have to update EOS-update-notifier to show updates again on i3-wm setups. Please run this two commands as normal user to proceed the changes.
It is mainly a change for i3 and other WM setups but it is recommended for everyone to use this two steps to make sure using latest changes.

eos-update-notifier --init-force
systemctl --user daemon-reload

And reconfigure the update shedule:
eos-update-notifier --conf
2021-01-03_22-14

We do add: Environment=DISPLAY=:0 to the service file:

eos-update-notifier.service

[Unit]
Description=EOS update notifier service
[Service]
Type=oneshot
Environment=DISPLAY=:0
ExecStart=/usr/bin/eos-update-notifier -systemd
[Install]
WantedBy=eos-update-notifier.timer

Also @manuel again inventing something new related to the notifier:

Thanks Joe. Are these instructions for everybody or just i3 users?

everyone should do that, but the change done is mainly for users of WM setups :wink:

If your notifications about system updates are working as expected, then not really mandatory to run those commands. But shouldn’t hurt either, unless you have made big changes to those service files.

And no, I don’t disagree with Joe! :smile:

Seems like there’s been almost daily updates for eos-notifier for the last couple weeks. I’m just curious what’s going on under the hood?

Run command:

 eos-pkg-changelog eos-update-notifier

That covers all changes. :sweat_smile:
