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 Stackoverflow.com.

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:

  • 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. Jul 7, 2013 at 18:33
  • I just have installed it,now what I need to do ?

  • Installed what/which? Also, I don't use either app, but they look fairly straightforward. Play around with their settings and see what happens. Jul 7, 2013 at 18:46
  • I installed Stackaplet.but didn't find any preferences. :(

  • 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. Jul 7, 2013 at 19:04
