This is unfortunately problem with KDE -- there is not enough feedback between
the non-KDE application being started and KDE notification system.
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-19 17:01:06 EDT
But what can we do in KDE about that?
Comment 3 Steven M. Parrish 2008-04-19 17:04:35 EDT
Did a search of bugs.kde.org could not find a similar report.  Please file an
upstream report for this issue and update this report with upstream info.


Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-04-19 17:36:57 EDT
Does firefox not use startup-notification?
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-04-19 17:41:43 EDT
Apparently not.  If missing startup-notification is not considered a bug, it
should at least be considered a feature request.

Nothing kde can do here (afaict) -> firefox.  firefox folks are welcome to close
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2008-04-20 05:06:23 EDT
According to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=223492
startup-notification should have been fixed in the November last year.
Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2008-04-20 10:07:44 EDT
Yeah, what makes you think it doesn't have startup notification support?  It
does, we've already uncovered (and fixed) bugs in metacity because of it.
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2008-04-20 12:35:55 EDT
*shrug*, I naively figured no (direct) deps on startup-notification implied no
support.  My bad.

At this point all we have is finger pointing, both kde4 and firefox claim to
support startup-notification.  So, now we've gotta figure out how to debug it
sufficiently to determine where things are going wrong.

Fwiw, this only happens with firefox, thunderbird seems fine.  For giggles I may
try firefox2 and/or some other xulrunner-based apps.

Regardless, I'll help take the torch on the kde-side of things (and reassign
accordingly).  Any input from "the other side" would be appreciated.

Mary, could you report this to upstream bugs.kde.org?  We'll see what they have
to say.  (Otherwise, I'll do when I have banked enough round-tuits).
Comment 9 Christopher Aillon 2008-04-20 13:11:10 EDT
The no deps thing is fallout from bug 443015 (see also bug 443112).  But it is
properly built and linked and everything.  I'd imagine since KDE supports
notification, something else on the spin would bring it in.  If not, then this
could potentially be the cause of the bug?
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2008-04-20 13:29:29 EDT
Maybe?  What I'm using currently is
$ rpm -q xulrunner firefox
Comment 11 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-04-21 06:34:36 EDT
So should I file this upstream or not?
Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2008-04-21 08:11:56 EDT
Re: comment #11 Mary, 
yes, please.

Can you update this report with the info from your upstream bug report.

Comment 15 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-04-21 17:53:49 EDT
It's included in this bug's metadata, but okay, here is the direct link to the
upstream bug:


No upstream activity yet ...
Comment 16 Steven M. Parrish 2008-04-21 18:05:21 EDT
D'oh my bad, missed it when I looked over the bug.
