Light theme updated will be automatically in Lucid?

Asked by martincasc on 2010-05-18

My question it's simple. New releases of the package, will be updated in Lucid? Or we'll have to download the package and install them manually?

If the package used to install it (assuming it is a package) is in the lucid repos then it will be upgraded. Other themes you have manually installed will be in $HOME so will survive the upgrade no problem.

I ran that command and I got this...

light-themes - Light Themes
cairo-dock-data - A light and eye-candy dock to launch your programs (common files)
light-themes-fixed - Light Themes Fixed

So, the package are in Lucid Repos, isn't it? And they will be upgraded when a new releases be out?

The packages are reviewed every 3 months (or is it 6) anyway they will come down when the MOTU update them.

andy@D420:~$ apt-cache policy light-themes
light-themes:
  Installed: 0.1.6.5
  Candidate: 0.1.6.5
  Version table:
 *** 0.1.6.5 0
        500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Its in the main repo so will be upgraded if you jump from karmic to lucid.
