Aptik v1.6

Aptik v1.6 is now available.


Top toolbar removed

The top toolbar was removed. It was simply duplicating the action buttons on the main window and adding complexity to the UI. The main window now looks much cleaner.

Package List Filters

The list of packages can now be filtered by name, type and status. This should make it a lot easier to search and select packages to backup and restore.

PPA Backup Changes

The PPA backup list would sometimes be empty on some systems. This has been fixed.

Package Restore Changes

The terminal window that pops up when you restore packages is now fully interactive. It's similar to running 'apt-get install' in a terminal window. It will prompt you before downloading packages and display the full installation summary.

Installation and Updates

Aptik can be installed by running the following commands in a terminal window:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install aptik

Existing users can update the application with the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install aptik
