Tried in Ubuntu 8.10 with Gnome
It's a simple thing really, to know what version you're currently running and to what version you're upgrading in update manager. But it's not readily available, and sometimes it can make confusions. Like I once had.
For example, I already have kernel 22.214.171.124, but my update manager recommends me to upgrade to kernel 2.26.27, see my confusion? It even occurred to me that my update manager had an error.
Compare this :
With this :
I guess you'll agree with me that screenshot #2 is way clearer and less cryptic.
How to make file version appears? This is where gconf-editor comes handy, read my previous post about how to launch gconf-editor in simple way.
Do 2 steps below :
- Alt+F2, then type gconf-editor to launch it;
- apps -> update manager -> check show_version; close.
