Re: [SOLVED] xfce4-notifyd stopped working with an error message

Killing them causes them to immediately respawn whereas with Terminate they stay dead. Another thing I've learned from this!

systemctl --user start xfce4-notifyd.service
Failed to start xfce4-notifyd.service: Unit xfce4-notifyd.service failed to load properly: File exists.
See user logs and 'systemctl --user status xfce4-notifyd.service' for details.
systemctl --user status xfce4-notifyd.service
● xfce4-notifyd.service - XFCE notifications service
   Loaded: error (Reason: Unit xfce4-notifyd.service failed to load properly: File exists.)
   Active: inactive (dead)

Mar 17 11:18:04 Poseidon systemd[1576]: xfce4-notifyd.service: Two services allocated for the same bus name org.freedesktop.

Spawns pager & 'systemctl --user status xfce4-notifyd.service' in Task Manager. Closing that terminal kills both.

notify-send test test

nothing happens.

fgrep -ri notif /usr/share/dbus-1/services/*
/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.knopwob.dunst.service:Name=org.freedesktop.Notifications
/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service:Name=org.freedesktop.Notifications

/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.xfce4-notifyd.Notifications.service:SystemdService=xfce4-notifyd.service

cheers for continuing help!! Just seen the xfce donate button so will do so.

/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.knopwob.dunst.service:Name=org.freedesktop.Notifications

You have dunst installed. It's conflicting. Uninstall it and make sure that file doesn't exist anymore. Then reboot.

Re: [SOLVED] xfce4-notifyd stopped working with an error message

Great spot, thanks. One more quick one - do you know a way that I could find either what installed or needed dunst as a dependency, and/or what is depending on it currently? Seems unlikely that I would have installed it myself without having been prompted by another program...

Thanks again for everything!

Try:

apt-cache showpkg dunst

...it should show you what it depends on and what depends on it.

Groovy, as suspected, i3, a product so over my head it might as well have been designed by aliens.

Cheers again Toz for all your help!
