    Pidgin-libnotify has stopped working.

    Hello, all

    I've been using Pidgin-libnotify for a while now, and it's been very reliable. However, recently it's stopped working and I'm not sure why.

    The only error message I've gotten is:

    Code:
    merlin@Familiar:~$ pidgin
    libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.
      (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files
    libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Failed to execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session
    The first error I get when Pidgin starts up. The second is when I try to enable libnotify in the plugin list.

    I've tried re-installing dbus, libnotify, pidgin-libnotify, I've even tried messing around with the /etc/group file, making sure my user was included in the messagebus group. Google and the ubuntu forum search have turned up nothing.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    All best,

    Adam

    Does it do the same thing if you run it with sudo?

    Re: Pidgin-libnotify has stopped working.

    Interestingly enough, no. I'm able to load up the plugin and configure it.

    Output from running it on the command line:

    Code:
    libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.
      (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files
    That's after enabling libnotify. I'm waiting on some happy soul in my buddy list to message me or sign on/off so I can be sure the notifications are running properly. Pidgin started from scratch, however -- I'm assuming it's reading /root, rather than /home/merlin.

    Well, that's some progress, at least. What do I do now?

    Re: Pidgin-libnotify has stopped working.

    libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Failed to execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session

    i get that same error under Xubuntu hardy.

    the interesting thing is... if i close pidgin, delete the .purple folder in my home directory, then restart fresh, the plugin works perfectly. but as soon as i logout/shutdown/restart then log back in the plugin stops working again..??

    it always works after i delete the .purple folder, but never when i reinstate a backed up .purpleBAK folder.

    Re: Pidgin-libnotify has stopped working.

    after searching for a really, really long time i found a fix... not sure the actual cause of the problem but this will work for me.

    launch pidgin like this:

    /usr/bin/dbus-launch /usr/bin/pidgin

    -or-

    dbus-launch pidgin


    i renamed pidgin to pidgin.real and made a script that does it for me, similar to compiz/compiz.real

    peace

    I am having a similar issue ... except that I don't have Pidgin-libnotify installed.

    Here is my output from the Terminal:
