notifications

Eric Abrahamsen-2
I've started using XFCE as my DE, as it was easier than rolling my own
panels etc. Everything's working well but the notifications. I do want
the notifications, as they can be handy, but currently they pop up in
the middle of the screen and steal focus. The problem is I don't know
how to target them for the purposes of *deny-raise-request* or
*deny-map-request* (I'm also not sure that's the proper method of
handling the problem).

Ideally I'd like to make the notifications appear in the top right
corner, and to be shown on top of the current window without stealing
focus. Is that possible? This is what `xwininfo' shows me for the
notifications:

xwininfo: Window id: 0xe00023 "xfce4-notifyd"

  Absolute upper-left X:  1927
  Absolute upper-left Y:  465
  Relative upper-left X:  0
  Relative upper-left Y:  0
  Width: 306
  Height: 70
  Depth: 24
  Visual: 0x21
  Visual Class: TrueColor
  Border width: 0
  Class: InputOutput
  Colormap: 0x20 (installed)
  Bit Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
  Window Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
  Backing Store State: NotUseful
  Save Under State: no
  Map State: IsViewable
  Override Redirect State: no
  Corners:  +1927+465  -487+465  -487-365  +1927-365
  -geometry 306x70+1926+464

Slightly unrelatd

I don't have a solution, but if you figure something out please let me
know. I've switched from Ubuntu to Debian, and also Xfce and I'm facing
the exact same issue.

I had to un-install xfce4-notify, and install notify-osd package instead,
notification appear correctly even on the tile groups. its a drop-in
replacement and works the same, ie it hooks up into DBUS and becomes
system notification facility, and notify-send command line tool
continues to work.

Much better, thanks very much for the suggestion! I ended up installing
notify-osd-customizable, fixes all the problems I was having, and
promises to be… customizable.

Thanks a lot!
