Hello community, I apologize for my bad English, I crunchbang member of the Spanish community, now called Spanish BunsenLabs, I'm using this distro two days ago after being with debian jessie very happy, and I mean they are doing an excellent job, the system works great, all the people of the Hispanic community is happy with the work you are doing, thank you very much for continuing the project.
Maybe there would be a possibility for a way to receive automatic updates?
For the rest congratulations from the entire Hispanic community Bunsenlabs that closely follows their work.
Perhaps you are referring to unattended upgrades. It's the horror of any sysadmin but if you use Debian stable, using it should be safe. I think we are not going to set up this by default in order to not configure the system to do things the user doesn't expect.
If you are referring to notifications about available updates by way of a systray icon, then it seems that gnome-packagekit is the successor of update-notifier in Debian and offering this exact functionality. Most likely KDE has something similar; from various threads I gather that XFCE doesn't.
Welcome to the Spanish BunsenLabs users!

9.5 Can I automatically update the system?
Yes. You can use cron-apt, this tool updates the system at regular interval by using a cron job. By default it just updates the package list and download new packages without installing.
Note: Automatic upgrade of packages is NOT recommended in testing or unstable systems as this might bring unexpected behaviour and remove packages without notice.
exactly I meant about the updates available through an icon, that answers my question thank you very much

BunsenLabs en Español! I just recently posted about you (love your screenshot and the screenfetch you guys came up with.
I've tried gnome-packagekit outside of GNOME without success. Manual updates are still the best for Openbox systems, I guess.
