Description J.B. Nicholson-Owens 2010-07-01 15:40:38 UTC
I have my system update checker set to run hourly and I'd like it to install the updates it finds without showing me messages.  I already know that infrastructure packages get installed first on each update where such updated packages exist.  I'd prefer it if the updated packages could be installed with minimal notification.

I imagine this kind of notification appears everywhere PackageKit front ends are used, not just Fedora 13 GNU/Linux.  However that's the GNU/Linux distribution I happened to notice this on.

Of course, if there's a problem or if the update requires me to reboot the system, it's fine to tell me that.  But most of the time I expect updates will proceed without incident and most updates won't require rebooting.

gconf-editor is your friend. Pretty much everything is configurable:


and lots more.
