Description Matěj Cepl 2013-06-05 12:48:56 UTC
Created attachment 757181 [details]

Description of problem:
When running the attached script the notification hides after roughly five seconds (which is default, right?). Using Ctrl-C (and obtained time measurement) I can clearly see that the script runs more than 5s and less than 12s even after the notifications hides.

From looking at gnome-shell/us/js/notificationDaemon.js it seems to me that the timeout parameter is on line 412 assigned to ndata object, but I cannot find anywhere in the rest of gnome-shell that this parameter would be used (the code of messageTray.js is so convoluted, that I am not sure I haven't lost it somewhere though).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run the attached script

Actual results:
notification hides after roughly 5s

Expected results:
it should hide exactly (more or less) after 12s

I also see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=658189, but that's against notification-daemon, which is now dead, AFAIK. Is it that the problem just got transferred with rewrite of notification-daemon into Javascript?

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2013-10-16 13:43:30 UTC
Upstream decided (in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=701645) that this basically isn't a bug.

Closing as WONTFIX
