Description Casey Dahlin 2008-11-03 16:47:48 EST
Running notify-send hello terminates normally with no errors visible anywhere, but I don't see a notification. I've noticed this on several installs across multiple machines. I'm guessing it has something to do with some piece of configuration I do personally since nobody else seems to have this issue.

I just checked, and on a fresh user account with no theme changes notification works.
Comment 2 Casey Dahlin 2008-11-15 16:59:38 EST
Found the problem:

If you have a gnome terminal that you have full-screened with F11, the notifications don't show. To an extent that might seem correct, but they don't show on /any/ workspace, even if the current workspace has no full-screened windows.

Moving and modifying...

I can't reproduce this with metacity; but my guess is that this is a bug in the interaction between libwnck and compiz, because how compiz does workspaces/desktops is "special".  Look at src/daemon/daemon.c:fullscreen_window_exists in notification-daemon.

Problem is gone in F10. Should we call that the end of it?

<stamp> THE END.
