What linux distro are you using?

What desktop environment? kde? gnome? xfce?

Where are you seeing that error message?

I do not know the term distro, so I cannot say, or even guess. I have seen kde somewhere, so I'm assuming that would be the desktop envirnoment. I usually see the notification pop up in the lower right corner of the screen, then accumulate in the task bar within the icon of the circle with the i inside, until I go through and delete them. They generally pop up as I am switching through sites/pages on the web.

If you can take a screenshot of your desktop and post it here, we might be able to identify it for you. You can install an application like ksnapshot or shutter to take the screenshot. Just look in your menu's for a screenshot program. Most installs come with it. If you can't find one, go to your Software Management application, which may be called Add/Remove Software, and do a search for either of the above apps, install one and follow the directions for taking a screenshot. By deafult, if you click on take screenshot, it will take a shot of your whole desktop.
