Hi there people!
I am trying install an program. And this error below is showed:
glib.GError: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Notifications was not provided by any .service files
What is this? How to resolve this error?
I saw that is about the Gnome.
I am using the new version of OpenSuse.
