Mint: install current owncloud-client

the version in mint’s repos is out-dated and to install the new one, just add opensuse’s repo for owncloud.

texlive install: minimal version

I tried to install a smaller version of texlive on a linux mint system.

the following packages are sufficient for my needs (math+science orientied):
texlive texlive-base texlive-fonts-recommended texlive-generic-recommended texlive-generic-extra texlive-lang-english texlive-latex-base texlive-latex-recommended texlive-math-extra

Furthermore, I will need the following packages at some point:
texlive-lang-german latex-beamer texlive-latex-extra texlive-pstricks

to enable automatic updates install:

$ apt install unattended-upgrades

check and uncomment in the config file as needed, well documented inside the same config file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades:

$ cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades
Unattended-Upgrade::Origins-Pattern {
"o=Raspbian,n=jessie,l=Raspbian-Security";
};
Unattended-Upgrade::MinimalSteps "true";
Unattended-Upgrade::InstallOnShutdown "true";
Acquire::http::Dl-Limit "300";
$ cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades
Unattended-Upgrade::Origins-Pattern {
	"o=Ubuntu,a=xenial-security";
	"o=Ubuntu,a=xenial-updates";
	"o=Ubuntu,a=xenial";
	"o=Canonical,a=xenial";
	"o=linuxmint,n=serena";
};
Unattended-Upgrade::MinimalSteps "true";
Unattended-Upgrade::InstallOnShutdown "true";
Acquire::http::Dl-Limit "300";

edit the config file:

$ vim /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10periodic
# update the package list
APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "1";
APT::Periodic::Download-Upgradeable-Packages "1";
APT::Periodic::AutocleanInterval "7";

# once a day
APT::Periodic::Unattended-Upgrade "1";

check if its working:

$ sudo unattended-upgrades --dry-run
$ tail /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log
