update-notifier not showing up
Don't really know if this is the best place for this thread, but here goes:

I'm using Ubuntu, which has an update-notifier. (I think Debian also has this.) It's supposed to show an icon in the Notification Area panel of the Gnome bar whenever updates are available. However, it doesn't. It used to work, but it doesn't anymore.

The notification area panel is visible (it is also displaying the Gaim and Firestarter icons), and the update-notifier app is running (it shows up in System Monitor).

I've tried running update-notifier from the terminal to see if any error messages were issued, but nothing showed up.

The Ubuntu version is 5.10, the update-notifier version is 0.40.15. There are currently two updates waiting, but I get no notifications.

Does anybody have any ideas?
