Maturing and getting even better: Octopi 0.5!

Thanks to KaOS, Manjaro, Chakra and Arch community support, this new Octopi version comes with some important enhancements:

  • BugFix: mate-terminal was not working 100% – thanks to ringo32;
  • BugFix: Merged offa’s pull request that fixed a bunch of things;
  • Download and Installed Package size is now shown in MiB when sizes are greater than 1024 KiB;
  • Added Qt version info in About dialogs;
  • Showing or hiding group panel is now persisted;
  • Added support for Ctrl+F in Output tab;
  • Added dialog for user to choose his preferred terminal emulator in a QML dialog (accessible thru “Ctrl+Shift+T” if compiled with Qt > 5.3). There is also a new “Terminal” option in “~/.config/octopi/octopi.conf” which controls that;
  • Notifier now syncs database only once a day. There is even a new “SyncDbHour” option in “~/.config/octopi/octopi.conf” to which can be assigned a specific time value (ex: “23”, to sync every day at 23h);
  • Added “sync database” menu option to Notifier, so users can check for changes whenever they want;
  • Added support for KStatusNotifier in Notifier, while in KDE and compiled with Qt5 and “DEFINES += KSTATUS” – thanks to brcha;
  • BugFix: Now RepoEditor keeps SigLevel sections untouched;

  1. I’ve fallen in love with this application recently, everything just “works” so much better than any other solution. Our new distribution that will be releasing as Alpha in about a month will be coming pre-packaged with Octopi. Thanks for the hard work!

  2. I really like Octopi!
    I need just one small thing to make me happy 🙂

    If I click to one app, then its details are shown in the below box. If I do this with keyboard (like pushing up or down at keyboard choosing another app), then the result is empty screen it does not refresh the data. The bottom screen should be refreshed with the details if I push up or down at the keyboard.
