Detailed Description

Notification-daemon is one of the libraries that though it supports theming, so far no effort has been made to make new, better separate themes for it. In Fedora, unlike Ubuntu, we use the standard theme, which looks ugly. This feature tries to create a better theme designed specially for Fedora, which means it needs to part of the Nodoka Theme.

The development is happening in the same place as the rest of the Nodoka Themes - [1].

Benefit to Fedora

New theme for notification daemon improves general user experience from the fedora artwork, which is therefore more consistent and better looking.


New engine that provides the same features as the default notification-deamon engine needs to be created and built into Fedora. We need a more convenient way for users to switch between the different themes than having to edit gconf keys.

Test Plan

  • Build into Fedora
  • Set as default engine
  • Use
  • Test themes selection

User Experience

User gets better looking notification bubbles but with same functionality as provides the upstream default theme.


None out of the scope of this future.

Contingency Plan

Stay with the current theme.


None available.

Release Notes

None needed, perhaps just a note about the change.
