I am on Ubuntu 11.10 and using Gnome Shell.

Since installation I am noticing that when my contacts Signs In or Signs Out, there is no notification showing at Gnome Shell. The sound notification works though. I am getting the sound but no visual notification.

At Unity it is working well. The problem seems to be Gnome Shell specific.

Does anyone else faced similar issue?

I have a similar issue where I get a sound notification but not visual for all Empathy notifications. I'm using Unity. – user32085 Nov 8 '11 at 14:06
