Hmmm, I thought I would still be getting update notifications even
without apper. At least I still have an "Updates" entry in systray
Need to check whether those update available messages still popup. I do
not care much about those, as I use apt on command line often enough to
upgrade the machine and there is something new daily in unstable anyway.
At least when I click the "Updates" icon it opens Discover. But right
now nothing to update here, so… no idea whether it pops up by itself
currently. But I thought it was.
For what it is worth, both Apper and Discover depend on Packagekit which
AFAIK does the heavy lifting underneath.
I thought Discover could fully replace Apper.
And when I look at the git commit history of Apper, I get the impression
it is not really maintained anymore since at least 2019 or even longer:
Except for some build failure and crash bug fixes.
Anyway, if Plasmashell currently crashes with it, I will not have it on
my system. Simple as that.
