Perhaps you could add some option allowing to filter them out to aarchup itself or maybe you have an idea for a (shell) script returning contents of pacman -Qu without ignored packages?

you could use this:

pacman -Qu | grep -Evi "pacman|vlc"

but you would need to write twice the ignoredPkgs one at /etc/pacman.conf and one at the command.
I don't know bash script enough but I could come up with this in python(3):
It will read the packages from /etc/pacman.conf call "pacman -Qu" and filter the packages.
If you don't mind using python of course.

#!/usr/bin/python
# aericson <de.ericson@gmail.com>
import re
import subprocess

ignore = None
with open('/etc/pacman.conf', 'r') as q:
    for line in q:
        m = re.match('IgnorePkg *=(.*)', line)
        if m:
            ignore = m.group(1).split()
            break
    try: # Returns 1 
        s = subprocess.check_output(['pacman', '-Qu'],
                                    stderr=open('/dev/null')).decode('utf8')
    except subprocess.CalledProcessError as e:
        s = e.output.decode('utf8')
    for i in s.split('\n')[:-1]:
        if not ignore or (i.split()[0] not in ignore):
            print(i)

make it executable "chmod +x" and pass it to aarchup using -c
Tell me if it does what you want. Also do you need it to consider ignoreGroup too?

Re: Aarchup a fork from archup

Your script seems to be working okay, thanks. I personally have no need for IgnoreGroup.

I'm glad I could help, will think if it's worth implementing that built-in aarchup.

I composed a patch for "pacman" exactly for this case (discussion). I know little about internals of "pacman", so use it at your own risk.

Version 1.6.2 should ignore those packages by default, could you see if it works fine?
Also it should work for AUR pkgs if you use --aur as long as you have the packages in IgnorePkg.

Please forgive me for this bug, I made the mistake of doing some wrong assumptions about pacman.conf syntax.
Could you please update it to 1.6.3 and give me your feedback?

With both libssh2 and zsh in IgnorePkg, notification doesn't show. With only one of them there, the notification shows both of them.

Re: Aarchup a fork from archup

Works perfectly, even with yaourt -Qyu. AUR-packages are also shown via cower.

But I want a tray-icon, just like the notification in debian/ubuntu that changes its icon when packages are available and will send a notification-popup, but just once. Would also be nice to add a default action maybe via right-click-menu or as a button on the popup.

I appreciate your feedback but aarchup is supposed to be as less intrusive as possible and I myself hate having a lot of stuff in tray area.
The point is just to notify when there are updates available if the icon is not there, it probably means that there aren't new updates.
It's supposed to be just a notifier and not a tray icon with notifications.
You probably could try pacman-notifier or Yapan but I don't know if they support AUR.
Sorry about that : /

Re: Aarchup a fork from archup

Hi, I try to run aarchup like this

 /usr/bin/aarchup --loop-time 2 --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg &

and get:

(process:1670): libnotify-CRITICAL **: notify_notification_show: assertion `error == NULL || *error == NULL' failed

What am I doing wrong?

Could you recompile(reinstall) aarchup, also "pacman -Q libnotify", Whats the version of it?
Whats your DE?
also run the aarchup with --debug and post the output

Re: Aarchup a fork from archup

I've recompiled, installed and run it like so

/usr/bin/aarchup --debug --loop-time 60 --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg &

the message is

 sh: cower: comandă negăsită
DEBUG(error): It could have been caused by an enviroment restart.
DEBUG(error): Trying to work around it by reinitin libnotify.

(process:1127): libnotify-CRITICAL **: notify_notification_show: assertion `error == NULL || *error == NULL' failed

also, tried to run it by putting inside .icewm/startup (that's what I use no DE) like this:

#!/bin/bash
if [ -z "$(pgrep 'aarchup$')" ];then
        /usr/bin/aarchup --loop-time 30 --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg &
fi

nothing happens.
and libnotify is 0.7.4-1

I just installed icewm and it didn't work for me either,
but just figured out what you had to do,
nY8Oo.png
make sure dbus is running
# rc.d start dbus
you will need the package notification-daemon
and for notifications to be shown you are going to need it to be running you can run it with
$ /usr/lib/notification-daemon-1.0/notification-daemon
of course you might want to add it to autostartup or something
good luck

no, it doesn't
I have dbus running, I installed notification-daemon , started this

/usr/lib/notification-daemon-1.0/notification-daemon

then

/usr/bin/aarchup --debug --loop-time 10 --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg &

and now I get

sh: cower: comandă negăsită
** (notification-daemon:1562): DEBUG: Adding id 1

Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_visual_get_red_pixel_details: assertion `GDK_IS_VISUAL (visual)' failed
aborting...

it seems to be working for you, I don't really know what I am doing wrong

since it's working for you on icewm I guess the culprit is most probably me, I will try also on my part to ditch icewm in favor of openbox , I'm curious if it will work
