    Hi
    I think you mean packagekit and gnome-packagekit. There should be an
    entry in Control Center->sessions called "PackageKit Update
    Applet"?

    If it doesn't you can add a new one using the following;
    [CODE]
    Name: PackageKit Update Applet
    Command: gpk-update-icon
    Comment: PackageKit Update Applet
    [CODE]

    Thanks for help gnome-packagekit was not installed. I don't know how is that possible, maybe it was removed durring installation due that frakin' patterns/depencies behaviour typical for openSUSE..

    Sometimes just updating manually can help, but I assumed you've tried...?

    Code:
    su -
    zypper up

    I have already tried zypper up, but it does not solved my problems. Zypper don't even see updades available in Yast package manager, but the main problem what i'm trying to solve here is ************* up GNOME Packagekit framework.

    Update viewer is unable to retrieve updates. Also there are no software repositories in repository viewer, there are also no software available in Add/Remove Programs and so on..
    PackageKit - Screenshots

    It's in this state from day 1 after default GNOME live CD installation with default updates and even when i can do updates manually through Yast package manager.

    I would like to have at least once fully working openSUSE installation without ************* up some core parts of the system.

    When will have openSUSE finally working package management like ubuntu? I mean, version 11.1 is not that s**t like 10.1 was, but this is simply unacceptable in yet another 'year of the linux desktop'

    I'll guess this issue is over capabilities of average forum 'helper' so meantime i go probably back to Ubuntu or Vista...

    FYI: Although I am KDE. My advice, at least to myself anyway, is quit the updater and don't have it running at all, ever. It has only ever been a nuisance for me.

    I would advise manual updates via Yast - Software Management -
    I filter by repo and select the various repo's including 'Updates' and work form here.
    I just don't need the updater trashing everything.

    Why? you ask.
    I shouldn't have to do this! you say.

    I know, but mostly, users add so many repo's and have incorrect priorities, that it just screws up the sys if you use updater applet.
