Ubuntu 9.04 Update Notifications to System Tray

by on Jun.13, 2009, under linux/ubuntu

It’s kind of annoying with the new 9.04 ubuntu upgrade, where your system update notifier pops up on screen! There is probably some reasoning behind this (perhaps they have quicker turnover rates on upgrades)… but I can’t stand it. I do update my system, but on my own time. Having the system tray icon is more then enough to let me know an upgrade is waiting.

To fix the ubuntu update notifier from coming up on screen (turn it back to its “normal” mode) run the following from the command line

gconftool -s -t bool /apps/update-notifier/auto_launch false

That’s all there is to it.
