I started “pk-update-icon -d 0” in a terminal on XFCE. This starts
immediately the check for updates, and it does just that, check. The
check itself is several megabytes heavy. When it ends, I get a prompt to
install or dismiss. If I say “install”, then I get a large dialog, where
I can accept or reject individual updates. Some are marked “security”,
some “important”, some “other” (the last come mainly from packman).
But no update is downloaded till I accept them.
I see no possible configuration.
In the XFCE setting manager, under “session and startup”, tab
“application autostart”, two of the entries are labelled the same,
“PackageKit Update Applet”. But one starts pk-update-icon and another
gpk-update-icon, which is not installed on my system. I have
Simply unticking those two disables all checking for updates - for this
user, that is.
Starting “gpk-update-viewer” does the same thing as “pk-update-icon -d
0”, it checks for updates immediately. The resulting window is the same
as before, and no configuration is possible. Again, no updates are
downloaded till I accept, if I do.
If I start “gpk-prefs” I see options to adjust frequency of checks, and
whether to do the check while on battery or when using mobile broadband.
Nowhere it says anything about downloading updates.
