The discover application is nice to use for installing software, however it’s rather annoying that it keeps telling me when updates are necessary. I am well capable of checking for updates myself.

So if any of the KDE/Plasma developers see this: Fix your shit and put an option in discover to disable the notification.

Until that happens (if ever) it seems we can work around the problem, which is what this post is about.

Disable notification

The culprit is a xdg autostart file located in /etc/xdg/autostart named org.kde.discover.notifier.desktop

Copy the file to ~/.config/autostart and add the following line to the end of the file.

Hidden=true

That should take care of it. At least until KDE/Plasma does another MS stunt on us!
