Bug Description

I am using Ubuntu Gnome Remix 12.10 sience it Release. It's Great but
there is no Notification if Updates are availible i have to search
always manually. I have set to check updates Daily but as i say no
Notification but updates still availible. Also is not possible to check
for other updates to be notified. So proper update integration is needed.

I'm reassigning to ubuntu-gnome-meta since this is specific to the Ubuntu GNOME Remix. I'm not sure exactly how to fix this yet.

There's two things you can do for now:
1. Open the Software app and click Check for Updates manually whenever you want updates.
2. Install update-manager; this is what the normal Ubuntu image uses and it works.

packagekit updates are handled by gnome-settings-daemon. However the ubuntu build of g-s-d has packagekit disabled.

The quick fix would be to rebuild g-s-d with packagekit, but I suppose that not likely SRUable. In addition it would result in another duplicated prefs tool (software-sources and gpk-prefs update pane).

In which case for Q, I guess its better to just recommend install of update-manager.
