Description Tomas Jamrisko 2012-08-17 06:48:05 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start xchat
2. hide it under a pile of windows
3. receive a message
Actual results:
You'll never notice

Expected results:
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.
Comment 6 Debarshi Ray 2014-04-01 06:08:42 EDT
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.
