Port user upstart jobs to systemd

Bug #1493518 reported by Bryan Quigley on 2015-09-08
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-notifier (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

These don't appear to depend on anything else in the user session so they might be a good group of upstart jobs to port first.

update-notifier-crash.conf - new file in directory
update-notifier-cds.conf - cd drive added
update-notifier-hp-firmware.conf - block on HP device inserted
update-notifier-release.conf - start on file existing
unicast-local-avahi.conf - alert user on single file

This is only for 15.10+. I'm currently working on it.

note that we currently don't use systemd user session, enabling/starting using those might be a good topic for UOS or ubuntu-devel list

It was mentioned in the desktop session at UOS that we won't be trying this for 16.04 and no one is really using user sessions ATM.

I'm going to close it for now given the above.

It may not be targeted for 16.04, but is still a transition we will need to make happen eventually. Reopening the bug, but unassigning you.

This has been fixed in yakkety -
update-notifier (3.171) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * debian/update-notifier-cds.conf:
    - use a valid variable to get the device name
  * debian/systemd, debian/update-notifier.install,links,crash:
    - convert the crash, unicast and release jobs to systemd
  * debian/systemd/update-notifier-cds.override,
    - disable the cd-upgrade and hp-firware jobs under systemd,
      they are not important and need more work (launchpad bugs
      #1604890 and #1604898)
  * src/avahi.c, src/update.c, src/update-notifier.h,
    - use /run instead of /var/run
