Bug Description

I don’t know how and why, but sometimes desktop notifications (libnotify) just stop working and are not shown – either applications’ notifications (like telling you not to unplug your external HDD while unmounting), or these called directly by notify-send. Killing notify-osd doesn’t help.

I have Ubuntu 16.10 x64, but I remember this issue back from 15.10 or even before, but I’m not sure.

libnotify4: 0.7.6-2svn1
libnotify-bin: 0.7.6-2svn1

notification-daemons is running or crash when it stop working?

Changed in libnotify (Ubuntu):
assignee: nobody → FanJun Kong - ( BH1SCW ) (fjkong)
status: New → Incomplete

I cannot not find this process when notifications stop working.

On the other hand, sometimes they start working again (I tend to leave my laptop on suspend overnight and when I work on it on the next day, I sometimes just notice they are working) and even then I cannot locate such process on my system.

ok, is there any crash report or log created in /var/crash? (be sure to enable apport)

No, there isn’t. There are others, but nothing about notification-deamon or anything related.
