I like using up2date. My problem is that the icon is always shown on the Notification Area on the lower panel. However it takes unnecessary space from the bottom panel for 99% of the time. I'd like the icon to pop up when there is updates availabe. Can this be done someway; is there some hidden config file for up2date with this option included?
If that was too hard, can I least disable the icon from showing up each time I login still keeing the Notification Area.
