Works now, but had to do some tweaks.

It does, now.

Works, now.

I needed to have notification-daemon running. Tested with lxde (not in
the book), and with plain startedX (in the book). I may be blind, but
cannot find notification-daemon in BLFS svn. Fortunately, I had it
running in this host I am using to erite this, and searching through the
applications starting in the session, found a line with the daemon.
Where I have got it before, cannot remember. I thought that having
notifications from firefox was enough to test notify-send.

Another issue, when searching the problem in the web (and there are many
references to problems similar to mine, with completely different
reasons and solutions), I found at the page:


"Versões disponíveis:
0.7.6 (versão em desenvolvimento)"

which translates to something like:

"Available Versions:
0.7.6 (version in development)"

Now, I do not know how to proceed:

1. include notification-daemon as required runtime dependency, perhaps
not for DE that have a similar one running?
2. where is the page for notification-daemon?
3. do not know how to bring from archive the page for
notification-daemon, if this is the case, nor how to add it back (Ken
have patiently and kindly given me important guidelines about it, but I
still have to study).
4. should the book be updated to the development version, or is that
info wrong, perhaps only appearing in the pt_BR page?
