useful keywords for searching : msn , popup , pop up , toast
I don't know how, but I would like to see the msn/google talk/maybe other progs toast appears someplace else... like at the right bottom, instead of the left bottom.
Maybe it's a simple param... but I don't get it, and it isn't much there in audacity.
Thanks to ANY help, at least, if it's useful !
I have absolutely no idea what you're talkning about.
hm, when a contact connects on msn, or when you receive gmail, and get alerted via google talk...
there is a small notification popup that... pops up, normally, over the the systray... at the right in fact.
But, using litestep, the little popup (or toast... because it looks like a toast that's jumping out of the toaster) is at the left... even if the systray is not there... it's uncool when you're on mirc, type a message, and a toast covers the message you type... it's a big deconcentration (not sure it is the english word.).
toast, lol, thats a good one *steals fun name*
I dont think this has much to do with litestep. Well maybe.
But it sounds more like Google Talk is trying to locate where the MS systray is, to pop up near there.
Have you tried moving your systray around to see if the toast follows?
This might be a tray-module thing. My Trillian toast (bahaha) appears where it should with xtray.
it actually has a name, can't remember what it is but it is retarted. Anywho...I have similar popups for FTP servers that I run and none of them follow LS. Could just be my old outdated themes though. :) I know at work we have apps that use it and we can specify where it comes from so I would say it is probably programattically done to default there if systray wasn't found.
Could a ls module "catch" toast, or move toast elsewhere?
yeah, those toasts are not following the LS's systray...
Someone should check how those popups are handled, i mean, if there is a kind of variable set, with the systray's position, it would be really sexy !
(xcal, what is the name of your theme, the one where the toast follows ?)
Right now it's named WIP (work in progress). It's something I'm still developing. :P
and if you need someone with a lot of toasts, i may be the one !
my trillian notifications (like the one where you first log on, minimize trillian, and it tells you it didn't close, it's just hidden) pops up at the right place. xtray should fix the problem. however, the theme you're probably using (Austerity) is using systray or something, so you'll have to do a bit of coding. or choose a new theme which uses tray.
nope, not austerity...
one with xtray, i verified...
maybe trillian uses another algorithm to find the its place... maybe it doesn't follow the systray !!
