After spending how many days of configuration and adjustments I have an almost flawless desktop environment running on my Kubuntu Maverick system. Sound, dual monitor, desktop effects.. everything works like a charm.
So the last thing whats in my mind is to update my Kubutu to the new released (and first and foremost buggy) 11.04 version. And for some unfathomable reasons my desktop notifier bothers me continuously and in very short intervals to do the one-click-upgrade.
This is driving me nuts! So here is a solution to disable ANY distributional update notifications:
Open the release-upgrades file
$ sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
And edit as follow
[DEFAULT] # default prompting behavior, valid options: # never - never prompt for a new distribution version # normal - prompt if a new version of the distribution is available # lts - prompt only if a LTS version of the distribution is available Prompt=normal
As you can see, the “normal” behaviour is defined as default. You can either choose to receive only notifications if any new LTS version is out there, or disable any dist-upgrades entirely.
