some questions

Dear all,

I have some questions regarding mail notification and some menus in the the XFCE desktop

When I set up the mail notification icon on the panel, it does not notify me at all for new e-mails, what could be the problem? I checked that my e-mail settings and related are correct.

When I log into my XFCE desktop, from time to time, the XFCE desktop menu dissapears strangely, so does the cpu monitor, I have to add them each time as they dissapear.

I use XFCE on debian etch.

With best regards,
utab

Re: some questions

Check if you have the packages 'notification-daemon' and 'python-notify' installed by any chance.
If so, view and run some notification sample scripts located under:
/usr/share/doc/python-notify/examples/
You can copy any of those sample scripts to your own home directory and modify them to your taste.

Now right-click your XFCE Mail Watcher panel applet to bring up 'Properties' and configure it to run any of your own notification scripts when new mail arrives.

Re: some questions

Very interesting. Mail watcher is working great for me but I want to hear a notification sound when new email arrives. I checked the python scripts mentioned above and nothing plays a sound.  Any tips?

Re: some questions

You can add something like:
play ~/mailsong.wav
to action, that should be done when mail arrives.
