No, but then in my view you don't need it.

However, if you can't live without the update notifier in Gnome, edit 
the KDE menu to add the following itemto any section you want:

gksudo /usr/bin/update-manager

and label it update manager.

You will then have an item in the program list in Kicker, which you can 
drag to the KDE desktop.

Its in my lists, and I think it got installed there by using Kappfinder.  
This will install a list of non-KDE (though not all) packages in the 
KDE menu
