How to I make it so that susewatcher does not start when I log in? I've
unselected the box in the dialog that says "Start automatically", yet it
still starts up at login. It's irritating because it keeps telling me that security updates are available even though I've installed them all. It would be nice if it came with any documentation, but that doesn't appear to be so, and I don't have a use for susewatcher in any case. By the way I use gnome, not kde.

This should not be the case (showing red when no updates are available).

What does the SUSEwatcher logfile show?

(which entries are marked with "S"?)

Ciao, Marcus

Hurumph. Now susewatcher is claiming there are no new updates and the "Show Last Log" button is grayed out. The frustration level is rising because I have not run online update in the time between I sent my first message this morning and now. I probably clicked on something somewhere. Just goes to show that all work should be done from the command line. Damn GUIs. ;-)

I'll just go with renaming the executable, as suggested by Carlos Robinson, but I'll probably use a different four-letter word to place in front of the executable name.

Thanks for the info, all.
