Do I need the Arch Linux Updates Indicator Gnome Extension?

AnyOne using the Arch Linux Updates Indicator Gnome Extension ?

And do I need it ?

Many thanks

If you’re using Pamac (should be installed by default), you don’t need it. Pamac will tell you when there are updates available.

Manjaro is not Arch …


We used to have an extension forked from this, but it was replaced by internal pamac function.
