@Alad 2015-09-20

I don't quite understand your comment.

tkPacman does not run "pacman -Sy" for refreshing the package list. It runs "pacman --sync --search" for refreshing the list of available packages and "pacman --query --search" for refreshing the list of installed packages.

"pacman --sync --refresh" is only run when the user presses the "Resync Database" button.

Do you mean that I should remove the "Resync Database" button to protect the user against "partial updates"?

Please use a temporary directory to refresh the package list (similar to pacman's checkupdates) instead of running pacman -Sy.

Using 'sudo' in 'runasroot' option does not work anymore with version 1.8.14.p2-1 of 'sudo'.
Upgrading 'sudo' to version 1.8.14.p2-2 solves this problem.

First upload to AUR4.

The update of pacman to version 4.2.0-5 fails, propably only on systems with Dutch locale (see https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/43257?project=3): when you try to run a pacman command after the update, pacman suggests to run 'pacman-db-update', but the command 'pacman-db-update' does not exist.

This also affects tkPacman because it is just a frontend for pacman.

To solve the problem, run 'pacman-db-upgrade' as root.

The update of pacman to version 4.2.0-5 causes tkPacman to stop working.

This is not a problem of tkPacman as such, because pacman also stops working: when you try tor run a pacman command, pacman suggests to run 'pacman-db-update', but the command 'pacman-db-update' does not exist.

Run 'pacman-db-upgrade' as root. That solves the problem.

The last update of pacman to version 4.2.0-5 causes tkPacman to stop working.

Here is how you can use mate-terminal in tkPacman. Use the following string for the 'terminal' option:

mate-terminal --disable-factory --title=%t --command %c

Nice application but it needs a patch:

On /usr/share/applications/tkpacman.desktop you need to change the line:
From
Exec=/usr/bin/tkpacman
To
Exec=gksu /usr/bin/tkpacman

Otherwise when you select to install something, the terminal opens and nothing happens.


Also change the permissions on /usr/bin/tkpacman so only root user can run this program:
chmod og-x /usr/bin/tkpacman

And finally you need gksu program as 'dependence' to ask for root password.

New upstream version.
