unable to locate mate-notification-daemon

Hello,
as I was testing Gnome-Shell on LMDE, I had to remove the package mate-notification-daemon to resolve some dependencies.
Now that I want to go back to Mate, I wanted to re-install the notification package, but it seems it can't be found in the reposiroties.
any idea ?

Code: Select all
home ~ $ aptitude search notification

i   libstartup-notification0        - library for program launch feedback (share
p   libstartup-notification0-dev    - library for program launch feedback (devel
p   mail-notification               - mail notification in system tray         
p   mail-notification-evolution     - evolution support for mail notification   
i A notification-daemon             - daemon for displaying passive pop-up notif
p   php-horde-notification          - Horde Notification System

Hi,
if anyone is ever interested, I found a solution to my issue.
I added the following to my sources.list file :

Code: Select all
deb http://packages.mate-desktop.org/repo/debian wheezy main


and was then able to re-install mate-notification-daemon. It's a bit strange that this package is installed by default on LMDE but not available in the default repositories, but anyway, this solved the problem and I have again the notifications on Mate :)

cheers

can you post your inxi -r please?
mate-notification-daemon is on packages.linuxmint and on tridex as well (of course) but in there is a higher version.
~ $ apt policy mate-notification-daemon
mate-notification-daemon:
Installed: (none)
Candidate: 1.2.0-2+wheezy
Version table:
1.2.0-2+wheezy 0
500 http://tridex.net/repo/debian/ wheezy/main amd64 Packages
1.2.0-1 0
500 http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian/import amd64 Packages

Hi zerozero,
thanks for your answer !
here is the output :
Code: Select all
home ~ $ inxi -r
Repos:     Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list
           deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream
           deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming testing main contrib non-free
           deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
           deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free
           deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free


and I now see that the "import" section is missing in the first line... I must have dropped it along the way, which explains why I couldn't find the package, although I had the impression my sources.list was complete :-) everything is clear now, thanks.
