@kmathern Based on your last post, I did an experiment. I temporarily activated the MEPIS testrepo, which kicked up 52 updates. Now when I opened Apt Notifier 'View and Upgrade' window, one of the pinned packages, ffmpeg appeared under the heading "The following packages have been kept back&quo...

Are the three pinned packages still at the same version they were originally pinned at? Yes, the pinned packages are the same version as when I first pinned them, which was many months ago. I suspect that these packages would have shown in the Apt Notifier 'View and Upgrade' window all along. The o...

Could you copy/paste the text from the 'View and Upgrade' window and post it? (or post a screenshot) Unfortunately I cannot because I've already installed the Thunderbird upgrade, so the green arrow is no longer active. Sorry ... I could activate the CR test repo, which would activate the green arr...

I recently switched the left-click behavior of Apt Notifier to the "View and Upgrade" window. This morning a Thunderbird upgrade appeared, lighting up the little icon with a green arrow. When I left-clicked on it, the window displayed four upgrades; one was the Thunderbird package and thre...

Without having data, one can only speculate. But I believe the maturation of virtual software, i.e. VirtualBox, WMware, as lucky stated, is a major factor. Those applications are more versatile and do a better job of running Windows software. Virtualbox/VMware are not recent phenomena, so I don't t...

Years ago, it seems that there were many issues/questions in these forums about this or that Windows application and whether or not they would work in Linux using Wine. Lately, I've noticed that there doesn't seem to be Wine questions any more. Could it be that Linux has finally matured to the point...

It opens the 'View and Upgrade' window when upgrades are available (green arrow over box icon displayed), if upgrades aren't available it still opens Synaptic with the left click. I have do that because if upgrades aren't currently available, there really isn't anything to 'View and Upgrade'. That ...

I like the window shown in 3.2.1 of the MX Manual. So I changed the left-click behavior in MX Apt Notifier preferences to "opens MX Apt Notifier 'View and Upgrade' window" which should bring up the window shown in 3.2.1 of the MX Manual. But after changing this setting, the Synaptic window...

I had fallen a bit behind in my flash updates, and when I ran MX Flash Updater it said my version was 451 and the latest is 460. When I ran the update, it did update flash, but only up to 457. I believe MX Flash Updater replaces /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so but you can also downloa...

kdirstat Is OP running KDE? I like graphical tools to chase this stuff down. There are a number out there, but my favorite is probably baobab , which is in the repos. AFAIK, k4dirstat doesn't require KDE, although installing it on xfce might bring in a lot of dependencies that the OP doesn't need. ...
