Anybody using smart-notifier package?
I have been recently playing with smart-notifier package to use
notifications (pynotify) and fixing some bugs. This worked nice with
(yet unpackaged) notification-daemon 7.1 but older versions and other
notification daemons fail to display long texts and do not have default
icon for critical messages.
So I have constrained notification to short warning and a button to
display full message in separate dialog (and also specified custom icon).
This solution is suboptimal mainly because it does not fit well with
nowadays trends (Gnome 3 and probably KDE4). Moreover, I realized
gdu-notification-daemon from gnome-disk-utility package does the same
job probably much better (i.e. no smartmontools needed as it uses
libata). But not everyone is using Gnome (or wanting upgrade to Gnome 3).
So I want to know if smart-notifier has any future at all. Is anybody
using it in Gnome in favor of gnome-disk-utility? What are using people
with non-gnome desktops?
