I am using Ubuntu 12.04 .

Generally in Ubuntu with Ubuntu-desktop i can get desktop notifications if any new updates are available for the system. But i am not getting such type of updates in KDE. Is there any way to enable them in my PC ?



1) Is the "Check for updates" enabled ?

kdesudo software-properties-kde

enter image description here

2) Is the System Notification for the updates enabled ?

KDE System Settings > Application and System Notifications > Manage Notifications; Event source: System Notification

enter image description here

At here: When those are enable the Kubuntu/KDE is checking the updates and notifying those.

Q & A

August: i don't have that option

Do you have the package: muon-notifier installed ?

Description: update notifier for KDE
The Muon Notifier is an update notification daemon for KDE. It uses the KDE Daemon frame (KDED) framework to present the user with update notifications, providing an opportunity to launch the Muon Updater to deal with these updates.

    Nice answer - thanks for helping us really dig into this. Like @raja, I also don't have a "system monitor" event source in that drop-down box. But I do have muon-notifier installed. FWIW I originally installed Ubuntu 14.04, then added KDE and switched to it. I no longer see either any sort of upgrade notifications. What else should I try? – nealmcb May 20 '16 at 17:40
