I'm running Gentoo ~amd64 with OpenRC and I use Cinnamon as my DE. The gnome USE-Flag is not set.

Running
Code:
notify-send "test"

Does not show a notification.
Running
Code:
sudo notify-send "test"

Makes a notification show up.

Although Cinnamon has a notification-applet these notifications are not integrated with it but spawn another applet which saves the notifications (little envelope icon).

I have tried this without a notification-daemon, with notification-daemon and notify-osd. They all share this problem. This makes me think that the problem is dbus.

I would like to get the notifications working for dbus and after that I would like them to integrate with the Cinnamon notification applet.

Edit:
I found out that clicking the test-notification button calls this script:
Code:
/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/modules/cs_notifications.py


Executing it with python2:
Code:
python2 /usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/modules/cs_notifications.py


Gives following error message:

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/modules/cs_notifications.py", line 3, in <module>
    from SettingsWidgets import *
ImportError: No module named SettingsWidgets

could something like adding

%wheel ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/notify-send

to visudo work? assuming you are in the wheel group.

My assumption concerning 'SettingsWidgets' was wrong.

Anyway I found the solution here:
