Well, not arguing about the fact of it breaking systems, but the 'Please offer me all

the moment).

Yes, I remember that.

New users should not get prompted to update all. Perhaps the default should be different.

In gnome, the 'biggest' issue is probably the lack of a panel icon to configure it, but
that should not really be an issue: like anything else, PackageKit is being configured
from the control-center, where a link to gpk-prefs is located (allowing to 'disable'

Let me see. I'm using 12.1 xfce now, which is similar to gnome and in fact shares libraries
and things. In the preferences panel I see nothing to configure the likes of apper.

Assuming that XFCE uses really the same stuff as gnome (and shares this as well), you would launch gpk-prefs to configure it (gpk being gnome package kit). Not sure where XFCE lists it..

Please let's stop confusing apper (which is a frontend) with other things.. it really does not help.

* Simplistic split of the various used names: *
PackageKit: (the backend)
gnome-packagekit: A frontend to PK, 'gnome'-ish
Apprt: A frontend to PK, KDE-ish (Qt). Former KPackageKit

Let's talk about the right things when reporting issues, shall we try?
