Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 849110
message notification not really noticeable
Last modified: 2016-11-15 09:22:49 EST
Description of problem:
xchat has an icon in message tray which flashes, when user receives a notification. The problem is, that the tray is hidden by default -> the flashing icon is completely useless as it is barely ever visible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start xchat
2. hide it under a pile of windows
3. receive a message
You'll never notice
User gets some kind of more usable message (libnotify ?)
We're now shipping a default configuration for xchat which uses normal desktop notifications, which are very well noticeable. I consider this fixed.
This was fixed in xchat-2.8.8-16.el7:
I think that was before we needed to file errata for RHEL7 builds, and I can't find a way to file a new erratum for this.
No more an issue.
