#8469 closed bug (duplicate)

Notification preferences not honored after reboot

Reported by: jprostko Owned by: pulkomandy
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Servers/notification_server Version: R1/Development
Keywords: notifications Cc:
Blocked By: #9425 Blocking: #8584, #11382
Has a Patch: yes Platform: All


I noticed that disabling notifications via Preferences -> Notifications -> Disable notifications does not work as expected. I expect the disabling of notifications to survive a reboot, but it does not. Upon rebooting I see the NetworkStatus notifications (which shouldn't show), and the settings under Notifications are reset back to their original values which basically ensures that event notifications will occur against my desired behavior until I disable them again.

The latest Haiku revision I have tried is hrev44018, as of this writing.

Just some information, hrev37700 added notifications_server to the Bootscript.

Janus's patch would technically work. However, in order to get notifications_server to boot on the first boot build/jam/HaikuImage* would need to add the notification_server symlink in ~/config/boot/launch. Given that it isn't an ideal solution, I'm hesitant to commit it.

#9425 has been created to address these issues.

I agree with mmadia. I attached the patch only to point out the problem in Bootscript.

If you add the symlink you must enable the checkbox in the Notifications app. (ATM the checkbox "Enable notifications at startup" isn't set as default).

#9425 is a better solution, there is one downside the server is loaded on any boot.

That downside isn't huge since if the start-up code is written like the mail_daemon's the notification_server would almost immediately quit if it was disabled in its settings.
