Description Pavel Alexeev 2010-07-06 04:28:53 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`

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Christoph Wickert 2010-07-06 04:47:04 EDT
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.

Two options:
- 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.
Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2010-07-06 06:30:32 EDT
Another option is to simply remove /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service.
Comment 4 Pavel Alexeev 2010-07-06 12:13:03 EDT
