If your TheIDE or other U++ GUI app suddenly stops working it might be because libnotify on your system was updated. If you run the application from terminal it will emit error like this one:
theide: error while loading shared libraries: libnotify.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This is because libnotify 0.5 (and earlier) is not fully compatible with recently released libnotify 0.7, so that the shared lib file name was bumped from /usr/lib/libnotify.so.1 to /usr/lib/libnotify.so.4.
U++ is already prepared for this change (since version 3273), but the application must be recompiled against the newer version of the libnotify library.
This doesn't concern win32 systems. Also applications compiled with NOGTK flags should be unaffected.
