XBPS Update Notifier

A simple Python script to provide a notification via libnotify whenever XBPS has updates available to be installed. New: Support for sending an email notification as well via SMTP.

Example Crontab Installation

*/30 * * * * export DISPLAY=:0 && python3 /home/<user>/xbps-update-notifier/ > /dev/null 2>&1

This will check for updates every 30 minutes and notify you if any are available.


This script requires that you have both python3 and libnotify installed. Run:

sudo xbps-install -S python3 libnotify

to install these packages.
