I am using Firefox browser and Ubuntu13.04. I am looking for an app,which will create a desktop alert with sounds,whenever any question included with my listed tags in my favourite list will be asked in

Is there any for the same?

There is no app, exactly like that but two are pretty close (they don't have any annoying sounds).

These both run on Windows + Linux platforms and provide desktop alerts for favorited/tracked tags. Check out:

App thumb, Uses the Chrome browser for its engine.

How to configure it ? for stackoverflow sites – Priti Jul 7 '13 at 18:33
Ubuntu is a Linux OS. These apps should work on it. Both apps have pop-ups. If you want sounds, you'll have to make your own extension or modify the source for one of those two. – Brock Adams Jul 7 '13 at 18:33
I just have installed it,now what I need to do ? – Priti Jul 7 '13 at 18:35
Installed what/which? Also, I don't use either app, but they look fairly straightforward. Play around with their settings and see what happens. – Brock Adams Jul 7 '13 at 18:46
I installed Stackaplet.but didn't find any preferences. :( – Priti Jul 7 '13 at 18:47
See the screenshot on the app page. You can also post an "answer" there, if you have a problem or feature-request for that app. – Brock Adams Jul 7 '13 at 19:04
