cool, can you make this addon run? or do you have to wait for it to randomly check?

Thanks

You cannot run it as it's on a timed check. Should be fix on it's way to disable it for Linux for now as there seem to be some quirks

In ububtu where can i modify the settings on this so it checks every few weeks instead of every day? Cant find this under my enabled addons. It does ask me if I want to disable it, but I still like the feature, just not everyday.

Nobody has an answer so I'll just disable it. Shame.

Running pretty smooth in Gotham on ATV1, I I need to dig into the config files to see if I can remove some of the categories I dont use as I could not find a way to do it within the UI.

Thanks for all the hard work, and if you need any help feel free to drop me a line.

Is it meant to update the software or just notify? I've ticked upgrade entire linux build and it asked if I wanted to upgrade to the new version (12.0 > 12.2 I assume), I clicked yes and its doing nothing that I can see.
