Default Fedora-desktop-list Digest, Vol 69, Issue 2

Hi,
black is O.K. but if there are people who don't like it, this may become dark gray with a light edge for example.

Regards

Matthias asked me to forward interesting forum threads to the list, so
here's the first one I've seen:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=232976

someone doesn't like black notifications FWIW I don't much like black
either (on a related note I hope color customization makes it into
gnome-shell soon). Not sure if there's anything to do here other than
tell him he's wrong and Fedora believes Black Is Good, though

Here's another guy:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=233012

he figured that he can install notification-daemon-engine-nodoka to get
'nicer' notifications...

I already outlined my
criticism a month ago in this list, so I'm not
going to repeat it here.

To be fair, there are also people who like them. Paul wrote:
"the newer notifications are more eye catching, which means they’re more
effective at doing their job."
I think this is no surprise, because the new notifications are *much*
bigger then the old ones. Also, there is no discrimination between
notification urgency [1], which IMO is a major drawback.

Christoph

Hello Christo,

could you tell us the reported bugs' numbers, please?

Btw, what do you mean
by 'went in the Dimension-X'? something like
http://www.dilbert.com/strips/comic/2009-10-15/ ?

I am pretty sure our OOo maintainer (who is also a top upstream
developer) *is* subscribed to this list (as he should be). With this
being said, I acknowledge 'went in the Dimension-X' is totally useless
as a bug report.
