I’m preparing my elder laptop for someone else, and want him to run as desktop user, with no sudo rights for normal work. So I defined this userid as type desktop in the user and groups dialogue. Then I added another userid for administative purposes, having sudo rights. So far all is good.
However the software updater process does not seem to run when the desktop user logs in. The application’s icon never appears to notify the user. It does, however, as when logged in as admin user.
Software updater’s settings are as follows:
- Look for updates: daily.
- Notify about security updates: immediate.
- Notify about other updates: immediateis.
I don’t want to tell him, he needs to manually check for updates every so often. What setting, or group membership is missing for the desktop user for the software updater to run automacitally?
