Also, there's a nice little test that I would like people to try:
do "pkcon refresh" to make sure you're up to date
Edit /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf and enable the
RefreshCacheScanDesktopFiles and RefreshCacheUpdatePackageList keys.
then do "pkcon refresh" and tell me roughly how long it takes before the
gpk-update-icon process (the box icon in the top right) stops reporting
Enabling the two commands creates the package list which is used for
auto-completion in gpk-application, and it also enables the icons and
translations used in the various client tools.
If it doesn't take ages (it's pretty CPU demanding) then I'll enable it
by default for F10.
