Gnome 2/MATE leave message

Posted 09-04-2013 at 10:18 AM by drask

I've been using the MATE screensaver instead of xscreensaver just because when you lock your screen someone can leave you a message. However, I was having a problem where if I actually try leaving myself a message, it never showed up. I got the answer for this from the following wiki page:

Basically, you must install the "notification-daemon" package. Then if someone leaves you a message with the screen locked, you see a notification box in the upper right-hand corner of your main screen when you log back in.

$ sudo apt-get install notification-daemon
It would be nice to be able to review messages. As far as I know, all the messages I left for myself before installing the notification-daemon went straight to the bit bucket.
