    LXDE Spin - Apper packagekitd error

    I've just received an older netbook from a friend, and wanted to play around with linux. I did a little research and i wanted to try the Fedora LXDE version (i have a "server" that runs Fedora but not much desktop stuff).

    I downloaded the LXDE spin and put it on a USB stick, and it ran decently on the netbook. I then used that to install on the netbook. It ran fine, downloaded chrome, no issues. I then wanted to try some of the other desktop environments to see if they ran really slow as i've had a little more experience with KDE environment.
    I installed KDE group and it ran ok, but when i tried the Apper packagekit app, it gave me an error.
    The error is:

    Error talking to packagekitd.
    I am able to use the LXDE packagekit software (yum extender) just fine. I did some searching and found a bug for FC18 live edition that seemed to have some incorrect permissions or something, but nothing for fc19 live edition nor lxde version specifically.

    Has anybody experienced this? Any other commands to see if this is an actual bug or what else i should try?

    Since I didn't receive any reply, i had to just reinstall using KDE instead and now works fine after also installing LXDE desktop.
