Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 611705
Notifications settings made in xfce4-notifyd-config fully ignored
Last modified: 2010-07-06 12:13:03 EDT
Description of problem:
I run xfce4-notifyd-config, but any settings made there fully ignored and notifications appeared at right top corner on black background.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qf `which xfce4-notifyd-config`
xfce4-notifyd doesn't have a black theme, so what you see is notification-daemon from GNOME. The problem is that ATM it is not able to switch die notification service due to bug 484945.
- As d-bus will always use the service that was installed last, you can uninstall and reinstall xfce4-notifyd.
- Edit /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service and the Exec= line to execute xfce4-notifyd.
Thank you very much for the answer. And workarounds also very usefull.
Reinstall does not change this linee in it file. I'll try rewrite it manually.
Another option is to simply remove /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service.
Second solution work great, thank you.
