Synaptic automated upgrade

Postby tassoman » 2020-03-18 23:27

Hello world,
I would like to update my installation using synaptic in a Ubuntuish way, graphical and automated.

So I managed to run this command:
Code: Select all
synaptic-pkexec --update-at-startup --upgrade-mode --non-interactive

Is there any command line argument useful to hide the synaptic main window? I want just displayed update-mode windows.
Thanks for your time.

I use this in an updater script I worked on quite some time ago, should still work but untested in a while.

Code: Select all
synaptic -t "UPDATE MANAGER MODE" --dist-upgrade-mode --hide-main-window --non-interactive

Thank you Dai for your reply!
I was missing the option --hide-main-window because isn't documented by help command, man pages neither.
