Cannot disable software update check

Hi,

On KDE's System Settings | Software Management | Settings panel I have set "Check for distribution upgrades" and "Check for new updates" both to Never but my system insists on launching /usr/libexec/packagekitd when I log in. How can I disable this? Is this a KDE bug (in which case I will make a bug report)?

Thanks,
Dan.

Did you remember to do this?

System Settings -> Startup and Shutdown -> Service Manager -> Uncheck "Apper Monitor" and while it's selected hit the "Stop" button -> finally "Apply" and you're done

Hi, Marko.

No, I didn't remember to do that because I never knew about it. Thanks for the info.

So, it's not a bug since it "works as designed" but it is a defect since it is not reasonable to have to check multiple screens to do this.

Thanks,
Dan.

I agree with the sentiment in this post.

It's probably supposed to work so that doing "Never" in the Software manager has the side effect of stopping/disabling Apper Monitor. So it could be a bug

Re: Cannot disable software update check

Actually, I am now putting this in the category of bug. I've now disabled Apper Monitor under Service Manager but it is still starting and I can't for the life of me figure out what is starting it.

I have now submitted a bug report for this on bugs.kde.org:
