HowTo show past or older notifications

Asked by sebastian-s on 2009-10-13

Hi, is it possible to show past notifications after they faded?

The situation is as follows:
I use NSsbackup to do my backups, NSsbackup sends a notification once the (manual) backup starts. If I leave my desk I will most likely miss messages by NSsbackup about errors in the backup process or that the backup has finished.

Regards Sebastian

This is not an answer to your question, but it might be a solution to your problem. NssBackup keeps a log file. It is stored under '~./local/share/nssbackup' for users and '/var/log' for super-users by default.

Hi Richard,
good to know about the log file - but as you said the question remains open...

For some reason I didn't find this the last time, but I did now: ~/.cache/notify-osd.log
