printer notification messages stop working after a while

Post by jupiter66 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 4:49 pm

I have this issue on Mint 17.2 cinnamon 64 bit (up to date).

When you print, you have typically a first notification box followed by another one when the printing is finished. All this works very well but for an unknown reason it stops after a while. Since I have other notifications (dropbox, for example), I think that only printer notifications are in cause (but I may be wrong). The only way to get these notifications back is a logout/relogin (a cinnamon restart is not sufficient).

After a fresh login, I know I still have the notifications after a suspend/wake or a cinnamon restart. But after a few hours (or the next day), they are gone.

As a workaround, you can kill the cinnamon-settings-daemon process. A new process will then be launched automatically and that repairs the printer messages.

However, I'm surprised than nobody seems to notice this bug??? I hope for a better solution...
