    New notification style?

    I'm not sure if this is a GNOME Shell only thing, or also affects Unity. I noticed a new style of notification popups yesterday, and don't recall doing anything in particular to get them... is this the new style?

    See attached screenshot.

    Hi,

    I don`t see any change in the style, but the color. And here I don`t know if it is your preferred or it has changed ?

    cheers

    These are the ubuntu ones (since 10.04 [or 9.10]). Gnome Shell's notifications appear at the bottom of the screen and look differently.

    Exactly... that's why I was kind surprised to see these again. I'm running GNOME Shell 3.6.2.

    Did I break something?? In all honesty, I prefer these ones. I never liked the GNOME Shell notifications... you kinda had to chase them, as they liked to hide from the mouse

    It just means you have notify-osd running under gnome-shell

    I'm running GS 3.7.2 and the notifier is still at the bottom...

    I might try that. I hate having notifications pop-up at the bottom.

    Er...

    How would one go about it?!?!?

    Since I didn't intentionally enable this, I really have no idea... but once I find out, I'll be adding this to my list of "Things To Do After Installing Ubuntu"... along with disabling overlay scrollbars and modal dialogs

    Edit: After a bit of searching, I suspect this might be the cuplrit:

    Code:
    $ cat /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service
    [D-BUS Service]
    Name=org.freedesktop.Notifications
    Exec=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/notify-osd
    I'm not 100% sure, but I think the Exec line usually refers to notification-daemon instead of notify-osd... can any GS-user confirm?
