minor error in upgrade instructions on http://www.xubuntu.org/get

Bug #128101 reported by Peter Maydell on 2007-07-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

The instructions on http://www.xubuntu.org/get on how to upgrade Xubuntu from 6.10 to 7.04 say:

"Xubuntu users will need to execute the command "gksudo update-manager -c" in a Terminal in order to launch the update manager"

This is incorrect:

pm215@canth:~$ gksudo update-manager -c
gksudo: invalid option -- c
GKsu version 1.3.7

Usage: gksudo [-u <user>] [-k] [-l] <command>
[rest of usage message snipped]

I think the correct command should be "gksudo -- update-manager -c".

Ah, just realised that I'm currently on 6.06 not 6.10, so if gksudo changed to not require the '--' between the two releases then this bug report is mistaken. If I can manage to upgrade to 6.10 I'll check this...

Well, I couldn't upgrade to 6.10 (ran into bug 71483/68799/73467/96094) so I just did a from-scratch reinstall of 7.04. But 7.04 also needs the '--' so chances are the website is incorrect.
