Re: DNF update notifier

Well this is a bit late now but should you reinstall this might be of interest.
Previously, I had only looked at the manifest of dnfdragora. I then realised, after looking at antikythera's post, that there was also dnfdragora-gui, so:
Code:
# dnf repoquery -l dnfdragora-gui
Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:00 ago on Mon 14 Aug 2017 14:09:12 BST.
/etc/xdg/autostart/org.mageia.dnfdragora-updater.desktop
/usr/bin/dnfdragora-updater
/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/dnfdragora/__pycache__/updater.cpython-36.opt-1.pyc
/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/dnfdragora/__pycache__/updater.cpython-36.pyc
/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/dnfdragora/updater.py
/usr/share/applications/org.mageia.dnfdragora-updater.desktop
and there is the problem:
/etc/xdg/autostart/org.mageia.dnfdragora-updater.desktop
So my suggestion from post 7 was correct; it is like gnome-software and you can prevent it from starting at login. First do:
Code:
$ cp /etc/xdg/autostart/org.mageia.dnfdragora-updater.desktop ~/.config/autostart/
(create ~/.config/autostart/ if it doesn't exist)
Then edit ~/.config/autostart/org.mageia.dnfdragora-updater.desktop and add this line:
Code:
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false
then log out and log back in, or, preferably, reboot.
Indeed, if you did not at least log out and back in, (preferably reboot) after editing /etc/dnfdragora/dnfdragora.yaml then dnfdragora probably would not notice the change.

I'm almost tempted to re-install just to try this, certainly looks convincing. Hope someone gets to try it and let us know but, really, why enable caching by default and why make turning it off this awkward?
