I am using Kde 4.5 in Debian and I get some notifications after start that I need to update something. How can I disable it (I often don't want to waste bandwidth for such things)?
I am using Debian Wheezy and Kde 4.5
Open the KDE System Settings application. (I find the easiest way is to press Alt+F2, type in
systemsettings, and press Enter. But you can also launch it from the K menu if you like.)
Choose Software Management under System Administration:
Then select Settings from the left panel, and under Check for updates, choose Never:
Finally, click Apply. KPackageKit will no longer bother you about updates. But, remember to use
apt-get or your favorite package manager to download updates periodically so you aren't exposed to security vulnerabilities.
