Automatic updates

Postby heiowge » Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:19 pm

Any idea how I can easily set Mint to auto-update? Someone posted a tutorial but it got spat out by my system.

I asked on the mint suggestions box for it to be added as an option that was turned off by default but could be easily activated. They marked it as a "considered" idea. This is idiot for "rejected". No explanation. The idea even had a positive score, so it wasn't like the community damned it. :x

Anyway. Rant over.

Any ideas?
