#5702 new Bug

Notification icon disappears when dismissing a notification

Reported by: Forage Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 2.83
Severity: Normal Keywords:


The Transmission icon in the notification area disappears when you dismiss a notification of e.g. a completed download. This happens in 2.83, but also in 2.82.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download a torrent
  2. Close the application (leaving the Transmission icon in the notification area)
  3. Wait for the download to finish and the notification popping up to disappear
  4. Click on the Transmission icon to show the notification
  5. Dismiss the notification by clicking on the "X"


  • The Transmission icon disappears but the application keeps running in the background

To get the icon back either:

  • Open the running instance of Transmission and deselect followed by select the option "Preferences - Desktop - Show Transmission icon..."
  • Restart Transmission

Running either:

  • OS: Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 (with GNOME (Shell) 3.12)
  • OS: Ubuntu GNOME 13.10 (with GNOME (Shell) 3.10)
