In current version of mate-notification-daemon (I have 1.2.0-2+oneiric) if you have multiple screens (I have two monitors attached) notifications are shown on screen that mouse is currently in. For example if I have my mouse in right screen notification is shown in right screen:
warning big image:
but If I have my mouse in the left screen notification is shown in the left screen:
So I would like to suggest couple solutions:
This bug is little bit annoying because I can't expect the notification to always show up in the same place, for example when I write code and use tdeamon (which uses notifications to show unit tests results) notifications tend to show all over the desktop.
I hope this description is clear. And thanks for all the great work you put into mate desktop! I really like it.
I agree, this bug or intentional option is seriously wrong without the option to specify the screen.
mate-notification-deamon at version 1.4 and the issue is there.
Users will be able to select which monitor to display the notification on or they can use the current behavior of picking the active window instead. This will be available in 1.6.
Thanks for implementing this, and thanks for all the work you put in mate.
