Run PPA Notifications

Asked by Steve Middendorf on 2016-10-07

I've installed it (Ubuntu 14.04) but don't know how to run it. Stupid, I know.
This is how I installed it:
~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jconti/recent-notifications
~$ sudo apt-get install recent-notifications
How do I run it?

The problem I'm trying to solve is this: I hear notification sounds when the screen saver is on, but I can't find out what they were for.

Many thanks for pointers.
Steve

If you are using Unity the package you need to install is actually indicator-notifications. After you install it, either log out then back in or in a terminal run:

restart unity-panel-service

The indicator will load automatically in the panel.

The package you installed, the recent-notifications package, is for gnome-panel in the gnome-flaskback session, but it is deprecated and not available after 14.04. You can uninstall it, it isn't needed for the indicator, and the indicator also works in gnome-flaskback.

Ahhh. Beauty. I see it now in the Menu Panel. I had been looking for it in the Launcher Panel. Thanks very much. Just what I wanted.

Can you help with this problem?
