Solus update checker - system tray icon

Fri Mar 09, 2018 5:58 am

Would make a great addition to the new software center design changes.

The updater is always running as a system service, now add the access icon to system tray.

Pamac is a good example. Static icon, dynamic color changes, easy access to the running service.

Link to the software center in a disappearing pop-up works, but leaves a little to be desired...

Thanks,
GM

You'd better suggest this to ikey on IRC as he is actively working on the software center rework at the moment.
