Xfce - can you replace xfce4-notifyd?

Is there a way to replace xfce4-notifyd with other notifications system?
For the most part it works for me, but there are some a bit annoying instances where notications displays with an empty button or a button with "default" written on it. I'd love to get something that either does not display buttons at all or display correct ones.

Re: Xfce - can you replace xfce4-notifyd?

Can you give some more details? What are those instances? What applications are those?

sure - here's one of those (the one I see the most often):


- this is triggered by Terminix .

I'll monitor other ones (can't recall which triggers button with "default" written on it).

Re: Xfce - can you replace xfce4-notifyd?

Wow! that is weird ..

Although, if everything else is working fine and only some application notifications are having this issue, I have to check what really is the issue here - notifyd or the application calling it ..

Please do post any other trigger that you encounter. I will also follow ..

Re: Xfce - can you replace xfce4-notifyd?

here's the one from dropbox:


so in general this not uncommon - that's why I'm wondering if there's a way to replace xfce4-notifyd with other daemon (as my guess is "fixing" xfce's one would be way trickier and probably out of my league - I'd have to wait for the developer to work on those).

Re: Xfce - can you replace xfce4-notifyd?

Thanks! After I posted my previous reply, I saw this myself with dropbox. I will open an official bug both on upstream bugzilla and see what I can do ...

Thx for looking into this nonamedotc .
Where should I look to keep track of the things? I'm slowly getting used to Xfce and would love to get rid of those minor annoyances I'm encountering (like this one).
