How to stop QTads from checking for updates?

I’m running QTads 2.1.6 on Linux. Although I have it set to “Never” check for updates, every time I run it I get an error box saying update information can’t be retrieved because “Connection closed”. Is there any way to suppress this message?

A workaround for that is to edit the config file (default should be ~/.config/Nikos Chantziaras/QTads.conf), and change this line:


Into this:


(Change the last “0” into a “1”.)

I really need to put an updated version out for that :stuck_out_tongue:
