    Default openSUSE 12.3: PackageKit is blocking zypper

    Hello everyone... I have just installed openSUSE 12.3 Gnome 3 on my laptop and I have one problem, I connected to the Internet and all that, now, I want to refresh my Repositories...
    I opened Terminal and typed this command down "su" then I entered my password and then "zypper ref" and I clicked enter it said this:

    "zypper ref
    PackageKit is blocking zypper. This happens if you have an updater applet or other software management application using PackageKit running.
    Tell PackageKit to quit? [yes/no] (no):"

    I have been always getting this and it's so annoying... I shut down my computer and turn it on and same time, I left the computer for half an hour and came back to it and same thing and I restarted my computer and still the same... What should I do now? How can I turn this updater or whatever it is down?

    Immediately after you connect to the Internet (or change user), PackageKit will do a routine check. Wait a few moments and it will have finished and you won't get the message.

    I don't use it myself but I believe you can right click on the icon in
    the system tray and disable it there. Many people have registered the
    same complaint and also disable PackageKit.

    Just kill it.
    At worst, remove it.

    I think maybe Apper is what is using / has open PackageKit

    Personally i remove Apper, and just use either the terminal or Software Management for updating and the same for installing RPM files.

    Yes, I agree that this is probably the case, and many here (including myself), do the same with Apper.

    Why would the OP be using Apper on Gnome 3? I suggest you read the first post again, carefully.
