aarchup 1.7.0 introduces systemd timer ans new script noxaarchup.sh to . but it sucks for me because in fact it uses gconf (I don't want it). The solution is simple - just change noxaarchup.sh:
call_aarchup(){
dbus=$(grep -z DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS /proc/self/environ | sed 's/DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=//')
user=$(grep -m 1 -z USER /proc/self/environ | sed 's/USER=//')
dply=$(grep -z DISPLAY /proc/self/environ | sed 's/DISPLAY=//')
sudo -u $user sh -c "DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=\"$dbus\" DISPLAY=\"$dply\" /usr/bin/aarchup"
}

@dape I will unflag as out-of-date as it's up to date. If you have a bug report please post it at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=119129 instead of marking it as out-of-date.

Thanks

@qvamatel just use the --loop-time mode instead of with a cronjob, it's easier to setup

Hello!
Hourly synchronization is not work with chronjob in kde desktop.
I see the /etc/cron.hourly/aarchup file and modify the next row:
su - $arch_user -c "XAUTHORITY=/home/$arch_user/.Xauthority DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/aarchup --uid $(id -u $arch_user) --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg"
to:
su $arch_user -c "XAUTHORITY=/home/$arch_user/.Xauthority DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/aarchup --uid $(id -u $arch_user) --icon /usr/share/aarchup/archlogo.svg"
I removed the fourth character `-`.
If I run this command in terminal (with root) then work aarchup and display the update notification. :)
If cronjob run this command in /etc/cron.hourly/aarchup file then not work. :(

Why?

Hi, I got it to work with crontab and gnome-shell/gdm .
Details here : https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1329897#p1329897
In short, it was missing DBUS env.

note: aarchup cronjob was fixed for me by renaming
"aarchup.sh" located in "/etc/cron.hourly/" to just "aarchup".
see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cronie#run-parts_issue
maybe it's good to adjust the example/doc in the package.

thanks!

@amielke

we are all having troubles to make it work at the crontab, if you could let us know how you did it at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=119129&p=3 ?

To run this Script under Gnome3, gdm you need to make the following change in /etc/cron.hourly/cronhourly.sh

comment out the line:
# su - $ arch_user-c "XAUTHORITY = / home / $ arch_user / .Xauthority DISPLAY =: 0.0 / usr / bin / aarchup - uid $ (id-u $ arch_user) - icon / usr / share / aarchup / archlogo . svg "
# IF YOU USE THE followin uncomment GDM PLEASE COMMENT AND THE ABOVE
# su - $ arch_user-c "XAUTHORITY = $ (/ usr / bin / find / var / run / gdm-path" $ {*} * arch_user / database ") DISPLAY =: 0.0 / usr / bin / aarchup - uid $ (id-u $ arch_user) - icon / usr / share / aarchup / archlogo.svg "

Add the line
DISPLAY =: 0 / usr / bin / aarchup - uid $ (id-u $ arch_user) - icon / usr / share / aarchup / archlogo.svg
