SNMP TRAP wont work

Since I am not a Linux Pro I am kinda lost when it comes to : 

sudo service snmptrapd start
RESULT = snmptrapd: unrecognized service

I did all what was stated in serveral documents and FAQs  configured several host sending traps to opsview, used the SNMP Trap - Alert on any trap , enabled tracing  . . .

I do not get any sort of traps into opsview. I had the hope this would work out of the box when using Opsview VM but maybe I am wrong and missing something and guess the missing service may be the reason. unrecognized service. Any kind of help is more then welcome.

regards

Some OS's combine both snmpd

Some OS's combine both snmpd and snmptrapd into one script, so you may find this works better:

sudo service snmpd
