Which graphical updater on stretch with KDE?

Postby linuxsat » 2017-10-23 08:05

Hi, I'm a new user of Debian (previously on (k)ubuntu) and I just install the 9.2 on a 5480 Latitude Dell laptop.
I choose the KDE environement, and I saw that that two graphical package manager are present by default: Plasma Discover and Apper.
I dont like very much Plasma Discover and i remind me that under kubuntu Apper was replaced a long time ago by Muon.

My question(s): Is Apper still maintained? More important may I use Synaptic or Muon as graphical package manager instead?

Thanks for any comments!

I use synaptic - it'll work just fine. I've tried hard to love muon but haven't been successful yet.
we see things not as they are, but as we are.

Apper works nice on my end, though i don't have anything agains Discover. It's nice to have a functional software boutique, but it doesn't detect packages or libraries on my end, so for that i use apper without encountering issues.
