Nodoka Notification Theme Draft


We use the notification system a lot - to notify user of old battery, empty battery, new mail, playing song, installed packages, available updates, ... so it should be given some love. The current theme is plain, and in a word ugly. So we propose to create a notification theme as part of the Nodoka Theme .

Notification messages are handled by libnotify, we need to look at it's theming possibilites, what we can do to make it look nice.

We target this on F10.

Source Code in git


After you install the package, set gconf '/apps/notication-daemon/theme' key to 'nodoka'.

You can do it e.g. using 'Configuration Editor', which is in gconf-editor package.
