Comment 250 for bug 332945

though i'm not a fan of these pop-unders,

if any one wants to have the update manager launch immediately when updates are available,use this

$ gconftool -s --type string /apps/update-notifier/regular_auto_launch_interval 0

the default is set to 7 days, but when this key is set to "0" the updates will be notified immediately...

this should be available in the update settings tab! why are the devs making updates so difficult!
