[SOLVED] Duplicate applications at notifications

Xfce 4.16.0, this happened after upgrade from Mint 20 to Mint 20.3, it shows some applications with small and capital letter at the beginning for example,
thunar and Thunar or clementine and Clementine.

Re: [SOLVED] Duplicate applications at notifications

Where exactly are you seeing this? When the notification appears? Or in a menu?

Re: [SOLVED] Duplicate applications at notifications

Its possible the developers changed the names of the programs with updates. For example, the current version of thunar will report org.xfce.Thunar because it changed its rDNS name.

If it bothers you, you can remove all of the entries from that list and let it start populating anew. To do so:
1. Start the xfce4-settings-editor
2. Click on the xfce4-notifyd channel in the left sidebar
3. In the right sidebar, click on the "known_applications" key
4. Click on the Reset button.
5. Exit out of the settings editor.

All the entries will be gone from the list (you may need to close and reopen the notifyd dialog f it is still open.

Re: [SOLVED] Duplicate applications at notifications

It works, I wait a few days to see for more applications how it is before I mark the topic solved. I reset also at the same time the muted applications which is under the known applications, so the notifications settings will not conflict in any case.
I think it is also the solution of the other topic, where it is not showing the installed applications.
Thank you for your help!
