    I don't understand why it doesn't at least support a text or xml config file... sure we can hack notify-osd's source code, but that means having to reapply the patches at every update.

    Thanks for the tutorial, BUT, count me in among those who want to know how to edit the position of the notification! I want to move mine to the the bottom right corner, how do I do that?

    What do I change in the patch to make it pop up in the bottom-right instead of top-right?

    Hi,

    As lots of people, I wanted the notifications to be at the left side of the screen. As I didn't found anything, I made my own. With my attached patches, you can put the notifies at top-right/middle-right (as usual), but also top-left/middle-left.

    You need to download notification-osd's source from https://launchpad.net/notify-osd, and apply the patches attached. Then compile, install and change the location with gconf.

    Use "gconftool-2 --set /apps/notify-osd/gravity --type int 2". Change the value from 2 to 0..4 and check the effects

    Left/rightness is actually dictated by whether the language in use is left to right or right to left. This is in defaults_get_top_corner of defaults.c toward the end of the function (line 2525 in my version). If you want to adjust the side it shows up on, that is probably a better place to do it than in stack.c. And it's easier too -- just reverse the if statement's logic.

    Thanks for the info. But changing in default.c, I would simply change the default, without giving an option for the user to choose, right?

    If this is so, I prefer the way I did it. I appreciate to have options.
