Any chance that this will make it into 12.1?
Yes, Apper is making it into 12.1 and I'm working with the author to make
sure it is fit for purpose.
So, how to test it?

I just start apper and got a window with:
"Cannot load library /usr/lib64/kde4/ ( cannot open
shared ojbect file: No such file or directory)"

Lookint at the filelist, I see: /usr/lib64/apper/ - I guess that
library needs to be in /usr/lib64...

It runs for me on x86_64 fine.

Something I think's important is to set the apper package to 'obsolete' kpackagekit. If you just install apper (like I did) kpackagekit remains and you seem to get its evil effects coming through (100% CPU usage for no reason even when all updates are finished, long periods 'building cache' or whatever it is etc.).

The single update in the 12.1 updates repo at the moment isn't a good test so I've enabled the factory repo and had Apper update all the packages from that, over 1000 packages in all. The display screen while it's doing the download isn't very good, it just shows blank white where the list of what it's downloading should be. Also the window seems to have gone non-responsive. See


Runs fine here on x86_64 also.
lancelot@slipstream:~> l /usr/lib64/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 316976 Oct 29 20:35 /usr/lib64/*

Well the end result of it was that I killed the Apper window half-way through the update of 1000-odd packages, thinking that it'd crashed. It hadn't completely crashed, only the UI, because when I ran zypper lu afterwards there were only 575 updates left to install.

So the freezing of the UI I screenshotted in should be fixed.
