Hi, I recently installed Suse 11.4 (running KDE) and my first experiences with the new updater are not great. It seems to stall, require a lot of intervention, fail, and generally not behave nicely. I would much prefer to use zypper manually as I used to but can’t find anywhere to disable this applet or process in KDE. Is there any way of disabling this so that the process and systray icon never start?
yeah, I’m looking how to disable kpackagekit too…
it checks for updates few times a day, and icon appears in the tray which makes all other icons to shift. I don’t like this animation. I would like to update my system manually through the Yast
I would just ask for someone the clarify, what a “kicker menu” is? Just clearly state what you mean, would be most helpful to many of us. I ended up just removing the kpackagekit via the software removal and that solved my problem. was attempting to install vbox update from oracle and it kept failing. I tried everything I could to get around this piece of ****, and finally just removed it. Hope it doesn’t come back to haunt me.

agree! so, usually in the lower left corner (by default) is a icon,
normally a green headed gecko (lizard), apparently some folks call it a
‘kicker’ because it is used to kick off applications…i call it the
system menu, or main menu but kicker may be the “real name”…so left
click on it and you are looking at the “kicker menu”
