remove "using package managers"218:16, 19 August 2011


Does KPackageKit still exist? It is not in the openSUSE repos, nor on, and I can't find it in /branches/stable/l10n-kde4/da/messages which probably means, that there are no interface strings for it (it has been translated previously).

I believe that Apper is the new KPackageKit, but its interface is not identical. Also, as far as I can tell, the default package manager in Kubuntu since 11.10 is Muon.

So Apper is, apparently, the development from KPackagekit. I don't know anything about Muon. We need to find users to help us out there. I'll ask Pablo_s if he can help with OpenSUSE and Apper, but we need to find a Kubuntu user to help with Muon.

remove "using package managers"

Please remove the distinction "using package managers" vs. "command line". Experts know that there is a distinction, but beginner's will say "I just want a way that works, not two ways to decide between where I don't understand the difference". --ThorstenStaerk 13:04, 18 August 2011 (BST)

Then the command-line section is the one that must be removed. For newcomers, the tools provided by the distro are always preferable.

This is a tricky questio. On one hand we don't want to overwhelm beginners with info that they don't really need. On the other hand some beginners will want to know more. We might hide the CLI stuff away by placing it in a subpage. That way beginners would not be confused on first reading, but would still be able to learn more when they want to.
