Notifications not shown nor sounded in Linux Mint 19.2
Settings configured to issue a sound and a message on notifications. however neither happen. I do get sound and messages on other applications (like Pidgin).

I should also mention that I'm using https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/615/appindicator-support/ in Gnome shell on my Debian 10 machine.

Thanks for Quassel. It's a really great IRC client, even with this one bug that I ran into. : )
I'm using Gnome and Wayland on Debian 10. I also run Quasseldroid 1.2.23 on my phone.
Using Quassel Client 0.13.1 from Debian repos, and custom builds of master, I originally wasn't getting notifications. However when I ran either version from the command line, I would get notifications, but not otherwise. I decided to comment out the 'X-DBUS-ServiceName=org.quassel-irc.quasselclient' line in qusselclient.desktop, and I'm pretty sure that launching the application from the Gnome GUI worked. However when i put that line back, notifications started working regardless of how I try to launch Quassel.
I tried leaving everything installed in /usr/local/, removing just the binaries, and removing everything related to Qassel under /usr/local/. The version from Debian works regardless.
I also experimented with this on Trisquel 9 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) and Gnome / Wayland. I got notifications to work occasionally with version 0.13.1 and the help of the "The Kstatusnotifieritem/appindicator support" plugin, but in the end, I wasn't able to get notifications to work at all on that machine, even if Quassel Client wasn't running on the Debian machine. Occasionally the version on Debian didn't work, possibly related to the behavior of the Trisquel machine, but for the most part, it works in Debian.
Thanks again : )
