Description Cole Robinson 2013-10-08 18:51:18 UTC
I have apper and gnome-packagekit on my system, the latter from groupinstall KDE for occasional testing there.

virt-manager calls out to packagekit on first run. I was just testing it out, while logged into gnome, and apper popped up rather than gnome-packagekit. I don't know what package decides what UI to run but I figured I'd start here.

This is up to date Fedora 20.

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2013-10-08 18:56:36 UTC
both gnome-packagekit and apper provide the same dbus service, but afaik, there's still no way to prefer one over the other, see dbus bug #484945
