notify-osd: selecteable position

Registered by igi on 2010-02-28

I would like to have the possibility to select the area for notification bubbles to appear.
I currently use Ubuntu 09.10 Karmic in a netbbok and in a desktop; in the desktop I'd like them to appear in the bottom-right. But, no matter of what I select with notify-deamon, they always appear in the top-right.

Besides it seems to be an Ubuntu design decision, I would like it to be reconsidered.

Whiteboard

Proposal for configuration dialog:

Checkbox: Enable Notifications (Disabling this will result in silent dropping all notifications) [unchecking this will disable all following]

Dropdown: Monitor to use, use randr monitor names if possible

Dropdown: Position on monitor (top-left, top-right, down-left, down-right)

Checkbox: Limit numbers of notifications shown at the same time (When disabled, the number of notifications will be limited by screen height anyway)
          Input field: Limit to [Disabled when checkbox above is unchecked]

Input field: Duration of a message in seconds (timer is paused while mouse-over)
