19.1 vs 18.3 Notifications Applet

Post by daviddez »

When under 18.3 the Notifications Applet showed when my nightly Backup (Déjà Dup Backup Tool) finished and also when files were added to my Dropbox, however now that I am under 19.1 these notifications no longer show, while others like time to remove a USb after dismounting do. I have under Systems Settings tried each possible config and there was no difference. Note that as I upgraded from 18.3 to 19.0 and then immediately to 19.1 this problem may have appeared under 19.0.

Any ideas? These notifications were handy! Thanks to all for helping!

Re: Dropbox notifications, 19.1 vs 18.3

Post by JChristensen »

I am also having this issue. On machines with 19.1 (Cinnamon) I do not see Dropbox notifications when another machine creates or deletes a file. On a machine running 18.3 or Windows 8.1 I do see the notifications. Dropbox version is the same on all machines, 72.4.136. Other notifications seem fine (Thunderbird email, removing external disks, etc.)

I'm not sure where the fault lies, I suppose it could be Dropbox. Any help in narrowing this down is appreciated.

Thanks for the support and observations JChristensen. I was starting to give up on the issue as until now there were no-one else commented.

It may be a Dropbox issue as you suggest, but note that I also no longer get notified when Backup (Déjà Dup Backup Tool) runs when before I did. So if it is a Dropbox issue, Déjà Dup has a similar issue. I also run Timeshift and there are no notifications, however I did not run it daily prior to 19.1 so can't report whether it gave notifications before.

Thanks again.
