How it looks under Fedora 19's MATE Desktop
Hi, this is a reintroduction of bug 498422 that was fixed back in Fedora 11...
Now with GNOME gone and MATE replacing it, I get those ugly notification dialogs again. Picture attached.
(I'm one of those people who still use Fedora 14, trying new versions now and then. To me this is a regression :))
Suddenly I realized there's menu → System → Preferences → Pop-Up Notifications and I can switch from Nodoka to Standard theme.
Leaving it here for others looking for a quick work-around.
(Interestingly, I have nothing with "nodoka" in the name installed, unlike in the original bug.)
This is a theme issue.
Which theme you are using?
Why not use a other notification theme with 'mate-notification-properties'?
oops, my answer was for your first comment.
Yeah, that fixed it for me and I don't really care about the Nodoka theme - just had no idea it can be opted out from.
It should still be easy to fix the Nodoka theme since the same bug was already patched in Fedora for the GNOME version. For more information, please check the old bug I've linked.
nodoka is a standard notification theme, same like coco or schieber, which should be never changed by your choosed theme, if this happens than is something wrong with your theme.
You should notify the developer of Darklooks (not in officials repos) for this.
I'm glad to hear that using 'standard themes' fix the issue.

will look into it.
What you mean is fixed with notification-daemon-engine-nodoka.
The re is nothing what MATE can do.
