KernelUpdate

In recent years, the Linux kernel has made significant progress in streamlining and improving hardware support most popular devices, and is becoming a more secure operating systems.

KernelUpdate is a simple application created by Italian developer Ferramosca Roberto, which allows you to easily upgrade the Linux kernel to the latest stable version, without having to search and download the deb packages.

Use KernelUpdate after installation is very easy, just open the app menu, as in a few seconds you will see the xterm window, and if there is one available stable version of the kernel you will be prompted to press Enter to install or cancel, press the key combination Ctrl+C as shown in the picture above.

KernelUpdate analyzes the presence of stable kernel version, not the development (alpha, beta or RC). The tool also supports any version of Ubuntu and derivatives, such as: Linux Mint, Р•lementary OS, Ubuntu GNOME desktop, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Pinguy OS, etc..

You can also check for new versions of the kernel each time the computer boots. To do this you have to add KernelUpdate in startup applications as follows:

After the program will inform You about the new kernel, you can immediately start the installation.
After pressing Enter will start downloading and installing the required packages for the stable kernel latest version, as seen on the picture.

Note. If you ordered KernelUpdate in the startup application, but the new stable kernel is not present, then during computer startup and logon an xterm window will always have to appear for a moment and disappear.
Installation into Linux Mint 14/15/16:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ferramroberto/kernelupdate
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y kernelupdate
Because the developer is currently not supported by the repository for Ubuntu 14.04/14.10 and Linux Mint 17/17.1 install manually the package is intended for Ubuntu 13.10 or Linux Mint 16.

cd /tmp; wget https://launchpad.net/~ferramroberto/+archive/ubuntu/kernelupdate/+files/kernelupdate_0.1-2~lffl~saucy~ppa_all.deb; sudo dpkg -i kernelupdate_0.1-2~lffl~saucy~ppa_all.deb
