Set up Kubuntu 8.04 (hardy) automatic updates

Here's how you can set up your Kubuntu 8.04 (hardy) for automatic updates. This is useful if you have set up a Linux system for someone who is not very familiar with the system but you still want them to have the most recent security updates.

First you have to start the Adept Installer by clicking on the "K" in the lower left corner and then "Add/Remove Programs". You'll the see the Adept Installer coming up:

Click the button "Edit Software Sources" in the bottom left corner. In the next window click on the tab "Updates":

Now you can select "Install security update without confirmation. From now on your Kubuntu will check daily for updates and install them automatically.
