I'm running Mint 13 Xfce and am having problems configuring the desktop notifications (the little informative bubbles that appear when I, for example, change the volume). I've installed xfce4-notifyd-config , which is a small GUI to customize e.g. notification appearance position and time.
However, it doesn't work. I've learned that if I kill the following daemon:
and, in a terminal, manually start up:
then I am able to customize the Xfce desktop notifications; the customizations disappear when I close the terminal window.
So my question is -- how can I prevent the first daeomon from starting when the system starts up, and how can I make the second daemon start up instead?
(BTW, notify-osd is a Gnome daemon -- why is it running on startup in Xfce?)
