Awesome Distro Watcher


This app does not install Linux on your phone. Instead it lets you know when updates are available for your computer’s Linux install.

Have you installed Linux? Are you using an operating system like Debian, Fedora or Ubuntu? Would you like to know when your favorite program is ready to update… Even before you start up your computer? Now you can use this app to watch your favorite distro when it updates packages!


Instructions (short version):

Start App
Configure URL of Distro on Configure page
Confirm URL Change and Click Pink 'go' button
Browse Repository ('BROWSE' button on main page)
Click on files for tracking (checkbox will turn green when file is selected)
LATER: click on 'CONFIGURE' and 'CHECK DISTRO' to see if updates for your files are available.

NOTES: The program just keeps one list of files for tracking, so if you switch the url you may still get notification that your package is new even though you selected it when another url was being used.

CHECK DISTRO typically will not work immediately after URL is set. It will take some time for the distro developers to update the package repository. Then the 'CHECK DISTRO' button will work. Be patient.
