Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just now, both the server and desktop editions of the Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope beta have been released. It comes with a boatload of new features, some of which come courtesy of upstream. A new GNOME release, a new X.org release, a new notification system, they're all in there.

Anyone else think the notification system looks REALLY annoying? Especially if there isn't a way to click them away, or disable them all together.

I find them good looking and usable. One thing that annoys me though, is that they're completely passive, which means I cannot interact with them. It's done on purpose, but I find not being able to click "reply" in the notification popup when someone speaks to me, annoying at best.

One good thing though is that if you hover over a notification it freezes and fades out so you can see stuff behind it. It's also configurable so you can select the theme, duration and other stuff. At least it was last time I tried jaunty.

yes try update-apt-xapian-index without the sudo
then again with sudo and in the meantime a notification pops up saying that it crashed.
