Hi, after the update of today 13 August 2019 I’ve found an issue with xfce4-notifyd-gtk3:
After login I don't see any notification (eg from Xfce Power Manager), after a little investigation, as I opened xfce4-notifyd-config, this window told me that “The Notification Service is not running. No notifications will be shown”. As I run
systemctl --user status xfce4-notifyd I got:
● xfce4-notifyd.service - XFCE notifications service Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/user/xfce4-notifyd.service; static; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Tue 2019-08-13 21:09:20 CEST; 4min 21s ago Process: 3278 ExecStart=/usr/lib/xfce4/notifyd/xfce4-notifyd (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Main PID: 3278 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Aug 13 21:09:20 Probook systemd: Starting XFCE notifications service...

Aug 13 21:09:20 Probook systemd: Failed to start XFCE notifications service.
But after a while, as I run systemctl --user start xfce4-notifyd, notifications properly works. But as I logout and then re-login, I fall again in the same issue: the notification service doesn't start. From Pamac I also tried to reinstall xfce4-notifyd-gtk3 0.4.2-1 but didn’t helped. What can I do?
Obviously after the system upgrade I rebooted my system.
After some minutes of inactivity, the notification service will fail again.
