Installers Updated

The installers for Aptik, Timeshift, Conky Manager and Selene have been updated.

The installers can now be used any Linux distribution based on the 3 major Linux families:
1) Debian (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc)
2) RedHat (Fedora, CentOS)
3) ArchLinux (Manjaro, etc)

Changes

The following issues were fixed:

Missing 'sudo'

The 'sudo' command is not available on all distros. Some distros have only 'su'. The new installers will prompt the user using 'sudo' or 'su' (depending on what's available).

Missing Shortcuts

The shortcuts in the application menu were missing for Timeshift on Fedora. This is fixed.

Issues on Fedora 20

The script had some issues on Fedora 20. Running the installer as root worked as expected, but running it with 'sudo' would prevent the user from logging in to the system. This issue is fixed. The new installers use the 'install' command to set file permissions instead of using 'cp'.

Dependency Packages

The previous install script only copied files to the system directories. Dependency packages were not installed. The new installers will check the type of distribution (Debian/RedHat/ArchLinux) and use the corresponding package manager (apt-get/yum/pacman) to install required packages.

Un-installer

Uninstallers are now available for all applications. For example, the commands 'aptik-uninstall', 'conky-manager-uninstall', 'timeshift-uninstall' and 'selene-uninstall' will uninstall the corresponding applications. 'timeshift-uninstall' will prompt the user if they want to delete the timeshift backups on their system to free up disk space.

Colors

Terminal messages will be displayed in color which makes the output more readable.

Testing

Installers have been tested on following distributions:

  • Fedora 20
  • Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04
  • Manjaro 0.8.7
  • Elementary OS Luna 0.2
