I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I recently disabled (accidentally pressed "don't show again" button) some network notification on GNOME Shell. There are (as I can remember):
Now both on Unity and GNOME Shell, those notifications didn't showed up, and it felt just wrong.
What can I do to re-enable those disabled notifications? Thanks.
Run these commands:
gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-disconnected-notifications "false"
gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-connected-notifications "false"
Or open dconf-editor and scroll down to org ▸ gnome ▸ nm-applet and uncheck disable-connected-notifications and disable-disconnected-notifications settings there.
gconf-editor lets you edit the network manager notifications.
Scroll to / ▸ apps ▸ nm-applet and uncheck disable-connected-notifications settings there.
/ ▸ apps ▸ nm-applet
Or the command line method:
gconftool -s /apps/nm-applet/disable-disconnected-notifications --type=bool false
gconftool -s /apps/nm-applet/disable-connected-notifications --type=bool false
GNOME is transitioning to dconf instead, edit with dconf-editor from apt package dconf-tools. Settings for nm-applet are at /org/gnome/nm-applet.
Is it possible in Empathy (Ubuntu 11.10, gnome-shell) to receive notifications when somebody posts a message to a chat room?
I have checked the "Enable bubble notifications" box under edit > preferences.
I currently receive notifications for direct messages from my colleagues, but not when somebody posts to the chat room.
It does not look to me like there is a way to enable notifications for this, at least not if you're using Unity.
However, you can set sounds to play whenever you receive a message under Edit > Preferences > Sounds:
However, you can have notifications displayed (whether you like it or not) if you use Empathy through GNOME Shell without your chat window being focused. A notification will appear at the bottom of the screen, showing the messages and even allowing you to type a reply.
I realize this amounts to my answer basically being "use sounds instead or switch your session", but that's the best I can come up with.
