I am pleased to announce that ucaresystem core version 4.2.3 has been released with some cool features. Now either you have an Ubuntu or Debian based distribution, you just need only one deb package installer.
Why bother ?
Here is the thing… I love creating automas (bash scripts). So until now there were 3 ways to get and install ucaresystem-core:
- On Ubuntu or Debian based distributions, you have the option to download a deb package and install it with your software center. But then, you would have to download e new deb package and install it every time I release a new version.
- On Ubuntu based distributions you also have the option to manually add the PPA with add-apt-repository to your system via terminal, then install it. This way you do a tiny bit manual work but then you get new versions automatically whenever they are released
- But If your distribution is based purely on Debian and you need those automatic updates for new versions, then you would have to manually add the appropriate and compatible repository in your source.list.d folder, import the signing keys and then install it and get the updates for new versions.
I though about this procedure and I had to do something to unify this “mess”.
So with the version v4.2.3, ucaresystem-core is being released as a deb package for anyone who has never installed it. This way :
- You download a deb package and install it just by double clicking it
- It checks for the name of your distribution and then adds the correct repository accordingly
- If the repository already exists it will skip adding it again.
Pretty cool ha ?. If you already have the PPA from a previous version, you have nothing to do. You already have the latest version. Just see for your self with:
sudo ucaresystem-core -h
If you are a first comer or you need ucaresystem core on a new installation, go grab the deb package from the ucaresystem Downloads page.
